A Note from the Executive Music Director... 

The Chicago Black Catholics Choir, Inc. (CBC Choir), which in its inception was The Office for Black Catholics Choir (OBCC), was formed on April 24, 2011 with about 35 members. 

The CBC Choir is comprised of both Catholic and non-Catholic Christian singers. The Choir's mission is to evangelize through song while preserving the rich musical gifts of prolific Black writers.  The Choir's repertoire  includes an array of choral and other genres of music.

The CBC Choir has been ordained to sing God's Praises. Our members come from churches in the Chicago land area,and the surrounding suburbs. We are a Catholic based choir who embraces all Christian faiths to join us in our mission to serve God's Church. Our doors are open to anyone who has the desire to praise the name of Jesus. 

The CBC Choir  has ongoing workshops and special choral training by other experts. We are committed to share the beauty of Black Gospel Music with the Catholic Church as well as other Christian Churches. The CBC Choir has sung for numerous events:  The 25th Anniversary of the Office for Black Catholics (a week long event), The 27th Chicago Gospel Music Festival (hosted by the Mayors Office of Special Events), 100th Anniversary Mass of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, Our Lady of Victory 2012 Festival of Choirs, "One Sacred Communion, A Multicultural Celebration, (Presented by the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Divine Worship), 125th Anniversary Mass Celebration for Holy Angels Catholic School, 
State Street Dance Studios performance of The Nutcracker, A special Prayer Service for Pope Francis' Appeal for Peace in Syria and throughout the world, Revivals, Vespers and Prayer Services to name a few. 

The CBC Choir has great travel plans underway. We will go beyond our local area to spread God's Word that we hang to sweet melodies. We are committed to go where God sends us. We are excited about the music we sing and will make a joyful noise unto the God of our salvation to all the ends of the earth. The CBC Choir has been selected to perform in the 3rd Annual Kilkenny International Gospel Music Festival in Dublin, Ireland June 2014.


I am very proud of this God-given opportunity to serve in the capacity of Music Director for this anointed and appointed aggregation of fine musicians.
