Mayor Shares News About Wilmington Children’s Chorus Giving Back to the Community

WILMINGTON, Del. – After a busy December, Wilmington Children’s Chorus members will conclude their holiday season by focusing on community service.  On Friday, December 21, members of the chorus will provide dinner and entertainment for the residents of Sojourner’s Place, a residential program providing long-term assistance to the homeless.”When I sing I am able to connect with other people,” said 17-year-old chorister, Ruby Anderson. “It brings joy and happiness. This is one small way I can serve others in the community.”

Choir youth and parents have taken the lead in arranging the meal preparations and caroling, and donations from several Wilmington law firms will support this community service event and additional projects of the chorus. Contributing law firms include Fish & Richardson, Morris James, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Seitz, Van Ogtrop & Green, and Potter Anderson & Corroon.

The Wilmington Children’s Chorus is a multi-cultural children’s choir sponsored by the City of Wilmington, Mike Purzycki, Mayor, as a project of Cityfest, Inc. Any qualified child can participate for free, regardless of financial or social background. Recent performances include the choir’s own Candlelight Holiday Concerts and collaborations with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra and the Cartoon Christmas Trio. The choir will hold auditions for new members, ages 8-18 on Monday, January 7. More information about the choir can be found at  

Sojourner’s Place provides shelter and individualized services for homeless men and women and empowers residents to return to the community as independent citizens. Over 1800 men and women have completed programs at Sojourners’ Place and moved into the community with jobs and housing.

“The youth of the Wilmington Children’s Chorus have been energized by some amazing performance experiences this December,” said WCC Artistic Director Kimberly Doucette. “We are glad to close the holiday season by sharing a meal and some cheer with our neighbors in need.”

The Wilmington Children’s Chorus is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.  The Division promotes Delaware arts events on
