Our Mission

Festival Choir singing at the 2015 Holiday Concert

Inspired by his own experience in the Newark Boys Chorus of New Jersey, Dr. John Alston founded the Chester Children's Chorus (CCC) in 1994 with seven boys from one school.  Today, the CCC numbers over 130 children, ages 8-18, from every school in the city of Chester, PA.  We encourage the children to develop discipline and self-confidence through an after-school & Saturday choral music program. We also have an academic and culturally enriching summer learning program. Our jubilant, family-friendly concerts cover a range of musical genres: classical, gospel, folk, spiritual, and rock.

Our motto is "Strong voice, strong mind, strong spirit."
