The Chester Children’s Chorus: Respect & Requiem

The Chester Children’s Chorus uses the joy of choral music to give the children of Chester tools to succeed in our complex world. The children love singing Aretha’s Respect. They love its powerful lyrics and driving rhythms.  And CCC members love singing Mozart’s Requiem. They love the fiery end-times poetry, along with Mozart’s dramatic musical architecture, driving rhythms, and heartbreakingly tragic harmony.  Respect is part of the children’s cultural fabric.  With their CCC experience, Requiem also becomes part of the children’s identity.  Together, Respect and Requiem teach Chester’s children about the power of excellence.
