About the Neighborhood Choirs of the Chicago Children's Choir
The Neighborhood Choir program provides beginning and intermediate choral training to 700 students with treble voices in 3rd grade and up through programs in 10 Chicago neighborhoods. The Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir has served boys and girls from the community since 2001. The choir regularly performs as part of Chicago Children’s Choir’s annual Canto Latino concert where they serve as hosts on alternating years.
The Rogers Park Choir has operated since 1991 and has been invited to sing for community functions in Rogers Park and beyond. Recently, the Choir has performed with the Northbrook Symphony and with the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago.
The Humboldt Park and Rogers Park frequently collaborate and are both led by conductor, Daniel Wallenberg. Last year, select singers from the choirs performed in Wozzeck at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and members of the two choirs have toured throughout the United States including to: St. Louis, Michigan, California and Indiana.
About the Music Institute of Chicago Chorale
The Music Institute of Chicago Chorale is a community chorus that provides an opportunity for adult singers with prior experience to study and perform the best in sacred and secular choral music. Celebrating more than 25 years in production, the Chorale has one continuing goal: to perform the finest sacred and secular choral music with the highest of standards in a community setting.
Under the leadership of Conductor Daniel Wallenberg, the Chorale has developed a wide range of repertoire, including motets, madrigals, part-songs, folk songs, and larger choral-orchestral works by Bach, Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart, Durufle, and many others. Throughout the years, the Chorale has collaborated with local choirs and symphony orchestras and has produced two fully costumed Elizabethan madrigal dinners. In addition, the Chorale has collaborated several times with the Music Institute’s voice faculty for concerts of opera and Broadway music.
