Music is a balm when we are in our saddest moments and it is a unifier when we need to come together as a community. The pandemic forced us to cancel our season-ending performances, but the Berkshire Children’s Chorus has continued to provide valuable programming to the young people in our community.
Starting in March, our two choral directors quickly adapted and began offering online rehearsals that gave choristers the chance to exercise their vocal chords and interact with their musical mates. In addition, we piloted our new Take the Lead! series, where women leaders from different industries share their career paths and daily job descriptions with the young women in our high school ensemble, Coda.
Please support this important work and help see us through to next year’s season, our 30th. You may donate online or send a check to Berkshire Children’s Chorus at P.O. Box 18, Sheffield, MA 01257.
We look forward to the day when we can once again gather to celebrate the uplifting magic of music. Until then, we hope these videos will provide some solace and maybe even a smile. As the song Juntos proclaims, “together we are strong!”
