Chamber Chorus performing a holiday concert at the Lake Zurich Performing Arts Center led by founding director Peggy Crawford.

     

Founded in 1986, the Barrington Children's Choir is a select group of approximately 150 auditioned young voices in grades two through twelve from suburban Chicago, Illinois. The choristers represent over 38 different schools in the area.  It was the vision of our Founding Artistic Director, Peggy Crawford, to unite the purity and simplicity of children's voices with the finest in concepts of music learning and artistic performance.  Our choirs are instructed in diverse and extensive American and multicultural repertoire including folk, classical, renaissance, and contemporary music in native languages.

      Our choirs are selected by audition and evaluation.  The children are placed in one of three choirs:

  • Chamber Choir:  grades six through twelve
  • Intermediate Ensemble Choir:  grades four through eight
  • Noel Choir:  grades two through four
  •       We also have a select group of high school choristers that comprise our Bel Canto Choir.

          Each choir rehearses weekly, performs at our annual Winter & Spring concerts and performs at numerous civic, church and corporate events.  Our tours typically occur every other year.  The Chamber Choir participates in both domestic & international festivals, while the Intermediate Ensemble travels domestically.

          Our organization is managed by a staff of choral directors & accompanists, an Administrative Director, and a Board of Directors that manages a high level of parental involvement which focuses on volunteerism and fundraising events.
