The Beverly Neighborhood Choir rehearses twice weekly at the Beverly Arts Center (2407 West 111th Street). The Beverly Arts Center was founded in 1967 to provide educational and cultural enrichment to Beverly Hills/Morgan Park and surrounding neighborhoods. Since 1993, the Beverly Neighborhood Choir has served boys and girls from the Beverly, Morgan Park, Roseland, Pullman, and southwest Chicago neighborhoods as well as children from Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Blue Island, and Mt. Greenwood. Neighborhood Choir members audition as early as 3rd grade and many continue into high school. At the Neighborhood Choir level, boys and girls learn proper vocal technique, music reading and sight singing skills, as well as the discipline of singing with musicality, movement, and expression. Singers are offered numerous performance opportunities to exhibit the diverse repertoire reflecting the multicultural mission of Chicago Children’s Choir. The Beverly Choir has performed in and around Chicago for events such as "Welcome Yule" with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and “The Lord of the Rings” Symphony with the World Symphony Festival Orchestra. In April 2011, many of these singers went on a 3-day tour to Philadelphia and in prior years have toured Minnesota, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, and Washington.
