The Children’s Chorus of Springfield (CCS) was established in 2007 by E. Wayne Abercrombie, Professor Emeritus of Choral Music at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Vera S. Baker, retired Director of Visual & Performing Arts for the Springfield Public Schools. In 2016, the CCS merged with Community Music School of Springfield. The Children’s Chorus of Springfield teaches music literacy through singing, cultivates a generation of leaders and ambassadors for Springfield through song, and encourages the active participation of our city’s youth in the Springfield’s vibrant arts community. Participants receive invaluable musical and performance training, learn how to work together, gain self-discipline and control, and become responsible citizens of the world.
