Our Choirs

Concert Choir

The Concert Choir is an advanced choir, open to boys and girls grades 5th - 12th, by invitation only from the Artistic Director. The repertoire is challenging, including four-part harmony and multiple foreign languages. Musicianship training continues to build strong vocal and sight-reading skills. Singers receive over 150 hours of instruction as they intensively prepare for the many performances of the season.

Concert Choir singers are focused young adults who are adept music readers and capable of singing their own parts independently. Performances include seasonal concerts and with local and national guest artists. The choir may also represent Jacksonville at various community events or travel to perform outside of Jacksonville.

Auditions are held by appointment May through July or August for the following school year. Due to extensive repertoire and choreography, a week-long camp is held in late July/August in preparation for the upcoming season.

There is no fee to audition. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need.

“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

“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

“JCC truly embodies some of the best qualities of team sports: camaraderie, discipline, patience, persistence, and positive mentoring.”

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent

“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

“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
