Youth Chorus - coro de la comunidad

Our Youth Chorus -"Coro de la comunidad"is an integral part of our new work of music-theatre in development On the Road to Arivaca. Under the direction of Leo Herrera, it has grown in one year, attracting students as young as precocious third graders up through high school and is conducted in weekly after-school classes taught in Spanish and based in the heart of DC’s bilingual neighborhood. Students acquire music literacy skills, learn basics of choral singing, and practice repertoire while experiencing the joy making music and making new friends.

Our Coro Performed for the Mayor's Office of Latino Affairs

Our Youth Chorus (coro de la comunidad) participated at a special celebration of Hispanic Heritage month sponsored by the Mayor's Office for Latino Affairs (MOLA) by performing on Thursday, Oct 12 at the Hamilton Live in Downtown DC. Coro members opened the program with the US National Anthem, followed by Sueña, featuring solos by some our older students.

This is the first in a year-long series of opportunities for our coro members to perform at local events as way for them to gain experience in choral singing and working together as a group to improve their abilities and self-esteem.

Based on the hard work of Maestro Herrera and our singers, our coro was also invited by the District Bridges BID to perform at their annual Columbia Heights Tree Lighting & Market at the Civic Plaza on Friday December 8


Thanks to all who came out and supported our young singers to help you get into a season of hope and light

We also invite you to help us launch a program to underwrite a fellowship opportunity for deserving coro students to join our special subscription series of Live & About, where participants go out together to monthly performances around the DMV, savoring opera, musicals, cabarets, dramas with music, and mixed-media productions from the rich variety of companies and programs offered in our community. Conversation following stimulates reflection and builds critical appreciation of the hybrid forms of music-theatre.
