Audition

Do you know a child who loves to sing?

Sign Up For An Audition

While prior musical training is not necessary to participate in the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, an audition is required for singers in grades 2-12. Children will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, maturity, and readiness. Singers do not need to have a prepared audition piece. The audition process is quick and simple. A conductor will listen for the singer’s ability to match pitches. 

There is no fee to audition. However, upon placement into a choir, a registration fee will be required. The overall tuition cost varies based on the choir level accepted. Full and partial scholarships will be available after registration. 

Auditions are being held by appointment only.

“Through music and your leadership, these children learn to perform in different languages while experiencing the diversity of an array of world cultures. The understanding they gain will serve them well as they enter adulthood.”

R. Randall Onstead, former President/CEO of Winn-Dixie

“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, Former Member

“Music plays a major role in the full development of a child. Not only does it enrich lives, it also serves as a pathway for students to express themselves and explore new ways to communicate with others. For 20 years, kudos to the JCC for molding the lives of young artists, and I look forward to the next 20 years.”

Tim Cost, President, Jacksonville University

“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

“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.”
