Community Outreach

The Apollo Chorus of Chicago has a long history, intricately tied to the history of Chicago.  The purpose of outreach, and my goal as Director of Outreach, is to give back to the city by:

  • Making connections with various organizations, such as schools
  • Coordinating concert attendance opportunities and outreach concerts for underserved populations
  • Organizing and overseeing educational opportunities within the community

In the past, outreach has set up donation funds for students to attend concerts for free, performed at schools and hospitals, and offered educational student guides for concerts.  In the near future, we'll be offering pre-concert talks, small performances, and more!  If your organization is interested in finding out more about outreach, or if you have an idea for how Apollo can get involved with your organiztion, please contact me at executivedirector@apollochorus.org.

On this page, find more information about our outreach efforts, educational materials about music, and past concert Student Guides.

 

 

 

Past Outreach Efforts

Members of the Apollo Chorus of Chicago regularly perform at the Hines Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Center.  Veterans and staff members have also received donated tickets for concerts.

Students and chaperones from METROSquash have attended our Messiah concert as well as our warm-up rehearsal, and had the opportunity to talk with our conductor before the concert.

Members of the Apollo Chorus of Chicago have provided vocal support for a Messiah Sing-Along held at Mather LifeWays Senior Residences for the past two years.

We have also opened our rehearsal time to students who would like to observe a choir rehearsal. 

We look forward to more wonderful opportunities to share our love of music with you!
