The Peabody Children's Chorus, founded in 1990, brings children together to rehearse and perform art and folk music of multiple cultures, languages, historical periods, and styles. In nine ensembles rehearsing in Towson or Columbia, MD, more than 500 young people gain invaluable experience rehearsing and performing high quality music in ensemble settings and studying ear-training and music-reading.

As well as Mahler's Third Symphony, the Chorus has joined the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Maestra Marin Alsop, for performances of Bernstein’s Mass, Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher, Britten’s War Requiem, Orff’s Carmina Burana, and Adams’ On The Transmigration of Souls, at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Baltimore; Strathmore, Bethesda; The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C.; and Carnegie Hall, New York City.

The Peabody Children’s Chorus has also performed with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, Concert Artists of Baltimore, Lyric Opera Baltimore, the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, the Morgan State University Choir and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra. The Chorus has toured in England, France, Italy, Germany, and Austria, performing in places such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, London; Wells Cathedral, Wells; St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome; St. Mark’s Cathedral, Venice; the Stephansdom, Vienna; the American Cemetery, Normandy; Notre Dame Cathedral and in the Dimanches Musicaux de La Madeleine Concert Series, Paris.
