ROGERS PARK — The Chicago Children’s Choir is hosting a virtual open house for its Rogers Park Neighborhood Choir next week.
The virtual open house is available to children in grade 3 or older and will allow kids and their families to learn more about the Chicago Children’s Choir. It will take place 4-5 p.m. Monday via Zoom.
At the open house, kids will learn a song together, play games and connect with current singers to learn more about the experience.
If participating kids enjoy the experience, they can stick around for a Zoom audition to join the choir. Enrollment in the choir is available on a rolling basis, according to Children’s Choir.

The auditions are for enrollment into the Rogers Park Neighborhood Choir, which is one of 11 neighborhood specific groups under the Chicago Children’s Choir
No prior experience is necessary to join the Neighborhood Choir Program, and young singers do not need to prepare anything for their auditions. Attendance at a virtual open house is not required to audition.
Those who sign up for the choir would be expected to attend one rehearsal per week — but those are currently being held virtually.
“What we have found with virtual programming is that it allows us to provide more individual attention, strengthen singers’ skills and provide connections between young people despite geography,” Josephine Lee, Chicago Children’s Choir president and artistic director, said in a statement.
Cost for enrollment to the Children’s Choir is based on a sliding scale of household income.
The Children Choir’s other neighborhood groups are also holding virtual open houses next week, including one in Albany Park Tuesday.
