Community Chorus Project (CCP) was founded in 2011 by Lauren Bromley Hodge, a Chapel Hill, NC based arts entrepreneur, in collaboration with the Department of Music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Community Chorus Project, LLC is a company with a mission. We seek to create positive social impact through the creation of diverse, inclusive music programming of the highest standard. Our goal is to plant lifelong seeds of creativity, fun and community for singers of all ages. Our partnership with the Department of Music at UNC helps to ensure the highest musical and educational quality in our curricula for young singers. Community Chorus Project singers work with a wealth of talented music teachers and artists (see staff biographies).
Community Chorus Project programs (updated January 2019):
For older singers, ages 14-18, the Summer Recording Workshop offers high-school singers an opportunity to learn and perform specially commissioned arrangements of pop, a cappella and indie based music, as well as making music videos and studio recordings.
In addition to youth programs, Community Chorus Project offers PopUp Chorus and PopUp Chorus BROADWAY, an ad hoc chorus program for adults and young people that welcomes all vocal abilities. No audition or weekly commitment. Just show up and sing!
Join our MAILING LIST and stay in the loop!
Participating in a chorus is a community building activity that enables people to blend their voices with others, increase their confidence and work as a team. Singing is the most accessible branch of the performing arts, requiring no special equipment - we all own our own instruments!. Music proves time and time again that it is able to cross cultural boundaries, bridge ethnic divides, and is truly the universal language. And it is fun!
The continued erosion of music programming in our schools, due to lack of funding and focus on the arts, creates a need for community-based music programs for students. We work to create opportunities for people to sing together, regardless of income, background or experience. We want our program participants to experience the sense of community that music is able to provide. Explore our programs and join Community Chorus Project!
