In Tune With The Community
Just as music notes can be tied and played together harmoniously, the Children’s Chorus of Carroll County embraces its ties with the surrounding community. As if we needed more “C’s” in our name, contributing talents to our community is important to us. Our members play an active role in the community with other music appreciation events in addition to our regular concerts and competitions. Activities may include caroling or parading through Westminster, hosting other musical groups from other countries, collaboration events, fun sing-a-longs, giving back through special ensembles or meals, or by joining forces and raising funds through local businesses, helping both parties while also raising awareness for the arts.
Please check out your member calendar or contact us for more information or to make a suggestion about upcoming community activities.
