The Palatine Children's Chorus was founded in 1987 by Judy Meyer Hays and in the 25 years since then, has become one of the Northwest suburbs' premiere children's choirs.
Supported by the Palatine Park District, the chorus has grown to over 130 singers in five choirs. Concert and Honors choirs have been touring since 1997, experiencing cultures and music as far east as Vienna and as far west as Hawaii.
PCC is dedicated to encouraging all children to discover the joy of music and the excitement of performing.
Throughout the coming weeks, PCC will be busy sharing the musical sounds of the holidays throughout the community.
From 12:30-2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, the Intermezzo and Concert Choirs will perform at Deer Park Town Center, 20530 N. Rand Road.
PCC's annual holiday concerts, Carols by Candlelight, will be held in early December. At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, the Do Re Mi and Treble choirs will perform, and on Saturday, Dec. 8, the Treble, Intermezzo, Concert and Honors choirs will perform at 3 p.m.
Both performances will be held at Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E. Wood St., Palatine. For tickets, call the box office at (847) 202-5222 or visit www.cuttinghall.org.
Throughout the year, PCC reaches out to the community to invite new members to join the group. PCC is a non-audition group that will be offering Welcome Nights from 4:30-6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7, and Wednesday, Jan. 9.
