Classes

Vocal Exploration

The Vocal Exploration Program is a fun, non-performing class for children in second through fifth grades. This ten-week class meets once a week. Each lesson combines learning musical skills, group singing, and play-like activities/games that bring together learning experiences and fun in meaningful ways.

The program is a great way for children to explore their interests in music and singing—potentially preparing them for participation in one of the Jacksonville Children's Chorus performing choirs. Our hope is that they will bring their developing voices and experience to other learning and group activities in school and beyond. Parents are invited to observe the final class.

“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

“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

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

Wali Gomes, 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

“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.”
