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.

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

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent

“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

“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

“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

“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.”
