Our Mission

Campanella is on a mission to dissolving borders among diverse community backgrounds. We cultivate children's ability to find harmony within themselves, with others, and in the world. Singing together teaches our choristers to value individual contributions, fostering understanding, acceptance, and support for each other within a collaborative team environment.

Our Philosophy

Our Unite Through Music Philosophy

For over two decades, Campanella Children's Choir has championed artistic growth, uniting diverse backgrounds in Chicago's suburbs. Initially focused on cultural preservation, it evolved into an award-winning ensemble, making diversity central to Campanella Educational Center. Our primary goal is nurturing children's artistic individuality through music, arts, and teamwork.

At Campanella, we embody "all for one and one for all," emphasizing each member's contribution. A key lesson is the value of a united team for collective and individual success. Our choral education encourages finding a unique voice within the choir while fostering attentive listening and creative cooperation.

Our Culture

Our Culture

Campanella, a cultural education hub, embraces the American melting pot ethos, independent of religious affiliation within St. Giles church. Grateful for this inclusive space, we strive to break down cultural barriers, promoting tolerance and understanding. Under one roof, we celebrate global musical culture through festivals and events.

Our diverse repertoire spans classical, modern, and folk songs, uniting children from American, mixed, and immigrant families. Led by passionate instructors, Campanella nurtures creativity and talents, providing special attention to kids with unique needs, ensuring they feel accommodated and empowered.
