Check out some of their reviews

I participated in the Choral Intensive Program (Advanced Choir) (this past July 11th-15th). I had a great time! All of the instructors were excellent, the music we prepared was beautiful, and it was also a great educational experience. I would highly recommend the South Shore Children’s Chorus to anyone on the South Shore who has an interest in singing.

Great way to build self esteem and self confidence. My daughter went from not singing in class to performing – all in one season. She is so happy to be part of such a wonderful group. She received constant encouragement from the teachers, students, and other parents.

My daughter absolutely loves chorus! Such a fun way to learn and experience music.
