Our Choirs

Primary Choir

The Primary Choir curriculum is open to all children in Kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd grade and is a semester-based program in fall and spring. Each semester will contain 10-week sessions. In each session, children will engage in short and exciting lessons that introduce the building blocks of music to them. The curriculum used in the Primary Choir is designed to provide children with the opportunity to explore music in the following 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.

Each year, participating singers receive 24-30 hours of instruction and perform in a recital for family and friends at the end of the semester. No audition is needed for the Primary Choir! Space for the Primary Choir is limited.

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

“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

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

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent

“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

“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

“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.”
