On Saturday’s broadcast, we feature the Chicago Children’s Choir in a program celebrating Black History Month.
The Chicago Children’s Choir, under the direction of Josephine Lee, reaches over 4,000 students from 57 Chicago zip codes. The choir regularly collaborates with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Ravinia Festival. They have also toured all over the world.
In celebration of Black History Month, the choir shares music ranging from traditional spirituals to a South African Zulu song. An entire set of music is also dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr.
