BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Tuesday mornings at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square, one can find the English for Speakers of Other Languages Chorus. It aims to help non-English speakers hone the language and develop friendships with others in the community.
The chorus is put on by the Back Bay Chorale. It aims to give people a chance to learn basic singing skills and songs in English.
Led by Associate Conductor and Director of Community Engagement Katherine Chan, classes are free and no music skills are required.
"The importance of having a safe space to learn and grow where you don't have to fear making a mistake, mistakes are okay," Chan tells WBZ NewsRadio's Brooke McCarthy.
The ESOL Chorus is performing this Friday, May 6 at Harvard University.
