Palatine Children's Chorus, a program of the Palatine Park District, is offering two free Welcome Nights this Fall. These free evenings offer children and their parents an opportunity to meet program staff and learn more about Palatine Children's Chorus and its individual choirs.

Palatine Children's Chorus is a program for children ages 4-18 who love to sing! The Palatine Children's Chorus begins its 28th season in September. Singers from throughout the northwest suburbs enjoy a variety of musical experiences in the Sing with Me (ages 4-5), Do Re Mi (ages 6-7), Treble (age 8+), Intermezzo, Concert, and Honors Choirs. The Chorus safely nurtures children's voices, introduces all age groups to a variety of music, and offers each level appropriate and safe vocal instruction and music education. Our traveling choirs have performed all around the U.S. and overseas: at New York's famed Carnegie Hall, the renowned Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, in Niagara Falls, Montreal, Quebec, Wales, England, Hawaii, Austria, Venice, San Francisco, Madrid and Barcelona Spain, and most recently, New Orleans at the St. Louis Cathedral. They have also performed for the Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Joffrey Ballet, at Lincoln Park Zoo, and at the Illinois State Fair as well as at many local Palatine-area venues.

All PCC choirs will perform a Fall concert on October 19 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Palatine, in addition to holiday concerts at Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center on December 10 and 13. All PCC choruses, including Do Re Mi, also help the mayor light the Palatine Christmas tree each year in Towne Square.
