Anima means breath, life, soul, spirit and mind and reflects our mission to transform young lives through excellence in music education and choral singing.
Anima is a world class youth choral organization, founded in 1964, which is internationally renowned for the quality of choral education and performance it provides. Formerly the Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus, Anima welcomes young people from Kindergarten through High School in various ensemble programs.
The heart and soul of the program is the extraordinary choral sound which is developed in a nurturing, communal atmosphere with a group of other young people who love to sing. We invite you to peruse our new website and learn more about us; and if you would like to become part of Anima through enrollment, donations or hiring the Chorus to sing at an event, or if you just want to know more about us, please contact us.
