Our Choirs

Primary Choir

The Primary Choir curriculum is designed to provide Kindergarten, 1st Grade and 2nd Grade children the opportunity to explore music in three ways:

1. Melodic – to have melodies in their heads and learn to coordinate their voices to sing those melodies.

2. Rhythmic – to feel the beat and its divisions and how that beat is grouped in either 2s or 3s.

3. Artistic – to be moved by music in the many ways music can elicit an emotional response.

The Primary Choir is semester-based, with 10-week sessions in fall and spring. Each year, participating singers receive 24-30 hours of instruction and perform in a recital at the end of each semester. Classes for the Fall 2020 Semester will begin Thursday, September 17th, 2020.

Auditions are not required. Need-based scholarships are available. Space is limited.

“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

“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, 16, Touring and Concert Choirs

“The JCC is more than just a chorus; it is truly a life-changing experience. The Chorus has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.”

Emma, 17, Touring and Concert Choirs

“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
