Our Choirs

Training Choir

The Training Choir is open to all children in grades 2-5 who love to sing! In weekly rehearsals, singers experience a fun and engaging lesson where they learn fundamental music theory and new vocal technique!

Unlike some of our other choirs, the Training Choir is a semester-based program. Each session is 12 weeks long and takes place in both the fall and spring semesters. On a yearly basis, participating singers receive 60 hours of professional instruction where they learn the basics of reading music and how to cohesively sing with other students. This choir is a performing choir and there will be a minimum of four performances per year, including major seasonal concerts.

Auditions will be held for the Fall Semester and Spring Semester. Auditions are completely free and encouraged for any child who loves to sing!

Full and partial scholarships are available on a financial need basis.

“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

“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

“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 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

“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.”
