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

“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

“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

“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 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
