Kimberly Burkhard Doucette (B.S., B.M. '01) is the Artistic Director of the Wilmington Children's Chorus, and Philip Doucette (M.M.'99) serves as Manager of Operations and Associate Director. Together, they have developed a community music organization in Wilmington, DE consisting of two yoWilmington Children's Chorusuth choirs, a select choir, a young men's ensemble, and a chamber choir. The Wilmington Children's Chorus celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012.

In 2011, the Wilmington Children's Chorus traveled to Germany and France, serving as musical and cultural ambassadors to Wilmington's sister cities of Fulda (Germany) and Nemours (France). In summer 2013, they hosted the Fulda Youth Chamber Orchestra on their visit to the United States, and sponsored a joint concert featuring German and American masteworks and folksongs, including a full performance of Schubert's Mass in G.

The Wilmington Children’s Chorus is a multi-cultural children’s choir sponsored by the City of Wilmington (Dennis P. Williams, Mayor) as a project of Cityfest, Inc. Any qualified child can participate for free, regardless of financial or social background. For more information, visit the choir's website found here.
