The Chester Children’s Chorus (CCC) will celebrate the holidays with joyous music during a free virtual concert set for Saturday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. ET. CCC founder and artistic director John Alston H’15 will share highlights from his favorite concerts, including the “Hallelujah” chorus with orchestra and “Let It Be,” along with heartwarming stories from the children of Chester.
The CCC is a year-round organization open to children from Chester, Pa. Throughout the academic year, CCC students encounter a plethora of positive experiences — both musically and academically. From the maturation of their vocal talents via rehearsals and concerts to the skill-building efforts of the math-practice program, all of the students show continuous improvement in a variety of areas. In the summer, a rigorous six-week, full-day learning program for CCC students focuses on music, math, science, art, swimming, and other areas of interest.
