About BCC

The Berkshire Children’s Chorus is a not-for-profit community chorus comprised of children in grades 1-12 from western Massachusetts and northwestern Connecticut.  Founded in 1990 by Nancy Loder, the chorus provides excellent choral music training to dedicated and passionate young singers under the direction of Julie Bickford, Artistic Director.

The repertoire of the chorus is not replicated in schools, making it possible to expand the children’s horizons to more classical and challenging musical experiences.

Students must audition and are selected regardless of their ability to pay tuition.

There are three choruses that make us Berkshire Children’s Chorus:

  • Junior Choir for Grades 1-5
  • Senior Choir for Grades 6-9
  • Coda for Grades 10-12
