Hubert Jones is a civic leader who for almost five decades has labored to address the social problems facing Boston’s underserved children and communities. Mr. Jones founded The Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC). In 2001, Mr. Jones experienced a breathtaking performance by the nationally renowned Chicago Children’s Choir, and returned to Boston determined to replicate this innovative program, as there were no organizations in Boston that effectively combine a mission for artistic excellence with an agenda for social change. He gathered the support of civic leaders and, after a year of planning and pilot projects, the Boston Children’s Chorus was launched in October of 2003.
