The Wilmington Children’s Chorus name has become synonymous with excellence: excellence in singing, excellence in performance, and excellence in education. A multi-cultural children's choir, WCC gives youth the opportunity and tools to excel while enriching the community with the unique sound and spirit of children’s voices. WCC involves over 300 singers, ages 5-18, in five different performing ensembles and three Neighborhood Choirs in collaboration with OperaDelaware. They regularly collaborate with the region’s top arts organizations and engage in international exchanges with young musicians from Wilmington's Sister Cities. Since 2002, WCC has provided this high-quality educational program for youth without the burden of tuition or membership fees.
With an added focus on the force for good that WCC has been in our community, the chorus has introduced its new initiative, Better Together, where the choristers use their voices to share a positive message of hope and harmony. As they sing, serve, and stand together, they make a difference in our city.
