Our Mission

THE SOUTH SHORE CHILDREN’S CHORUS of Massachusetts premiered it’s first rehearsals in January of 2016.

HISTORY

The South Shore Children’s Chorus was founded in January of 2016 by colleagues Kirsten (Shetler) Oberoi and Carey Shunskis.  Originally, SSCC offered choral classes for singers in grades Pre-K through 9th grade. The two directors managed, directed, accompanied, and taught from January 2016 – May 2016, and the SSCC Inaugural Concert was held on May 15th, 2016. July of 2016 saw the founding of SSCC’s annual summer programming, including a week-long Summer Choral Intensive for high-school aged students, and September of 2016 began the Advanced Choir serving high school aged singers grades 8-12.

Since the Inaugural Concert, SSCC has produced a Winter and Spring Concert every year. SSCC has also collaborated with organizations such as The Treble Chorus of New England, Genesis Chamber Singers, the Quincy Choral Society, and the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra.

In September 2018, the South Shore Children’s Chorus will expand to include a secondary rehearsal site in Sharon, MA. SSCC expects to continue to expand over the next 10 years, to include children from all areas of the south shore!
