DEVELOPING LIFE-LONG SKILLS

A Parent’s Perspective On The JCC 

Participating in JCC totally changed our family, especially Sophia. It all began with an ad that said “Do you know a child who loves to sing?” As parents, we know nothing about chorus, but since Sophia has been a part of JCC, we feel very proud. She started from Training Choir five years ago, and progressed all the way to the Touring Choir last year. Sophia learned so many things that she couldn’t get from home or school. JCC doesn’t only provide music skills, they have helped her grow faster in many aspects compared to other children, and we are very happy and thankful for that. 

COVID has changed people, but has also built people. We all knew that a lot of places closed due to COVID, but JCC had the top level of protection for all the members (e.g. masks on all the time, air filters, change rooms every half hour, etc.). JCC’s policies and practices made us feel confident. Also, it taught her and demonstrated to her the correct way to respect and follow science and discipline. These skills will benefit her for the rest of her life.

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne , Former Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“Being a part of the JCC has not only allowed Christian to experience the fun, excitement and pleasure of singing with friends, it has also helped him to develop a sense of confidence that comes from life skills of hard work and perseverance.”

Elaine Bourne, JCC Parent

“I was in the Jacksonville Children's Chorus in 1999-2002. It helped me to build long lasting friendships and a greater love for music. To this day I still remember the fun times and great concerts we did in the JCC. I think this organization is great for children of all ages, it helps build confidence and friendships.”

Bethany, JCC Alum

“Music is such a valuable part of life. The way it enriches one’s life and encourages creativity, I do not believe anything else can do as much. We in Jacksonville are certainly blessed to have the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus.”

Scott C. Snyder, President, Compass Consulting Group

“The Chorus expands your musical horizons and helps you grow as a person. You are surrounded with other young people who have something in common…their love of music. I have learned that music does, indeed, bring people and cultures together. The music we sing brings people hope for a better future of understanding and cooperation.”

Jasmine M., JCC Alum
