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.

“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

“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

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

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent
