Every year, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s (CSO) Classical Roots Community Mass Choir brings together over 150 volunteer singers and music ministers from a dozen area churches into one well-recognized group. Through their concerts, they seek to engage communities and celebrate African American musical heritage.

Since 2011, the Young Professionals Choral Collective (YPCC) of Cincinnatihas sought to connect local people, businesses, and arts through the beauty of choral music. This group of 850 volunteer singers is known for its unique, high-quality concerts, including collaborations with other Cincinnati arts organizations.

The Cincinnati Boychoir, one of the premier professional boychoirs in the United States, is dedicated to developing young boys and men musically, intellectually, and emotionally. From its home at the Aronoff Center for the Arts, the Boychoir offers opportunities to approximately 200 young men every year and performs regularly with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
