Singer Scholarships

Singer Scholarships

The Chorus’ growth, from 16 voices in 1995 to over 1,000 in year-long choirs and outreach programs today, illustrates its continued impact on our entire community here in Northeast Florida. Because music education is important to a child’s development, JCC offers a scholarship program to ensure every child who desires to participate may do so regardless of a family’s ability to afford tuition. Approximately 40% of JCC students receive scholarships to cover tuition costs. 

Scholarships provide tuition, uniforms, and cover the cost of performances and trips — the chance of a lifetime for our region’s young children, many of whom have never left the state of Florida. Full and partial scholarships are provided to those singers who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in The Chorus. In our 2018-19 season, 148 singers received such assistance, compared to 77 singers in our 2013-14 season. With the funding through events and donations, we hope to continue our scholarship assistance each season.

In addition to providing a high-quality music education to its singers, the scholarship program ensures diversity in Jacksonville Children's Chorus.

A Singer's Story

Support The Chorus

“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, JCC Alum

“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

“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.”

Jasmine M., JCC Alum

“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.”
