Our Choirs

Concert Choir

The Concert Choir is an advanced choir, open to boys and girls by invitation only from the Artistic and Executive Director. The repertoire is challenging, including four-part harmony and multiple foreign languages. Musicianship training continues to build strong vocal and sight-reading skills. Singers receive over 150 hours of instruction as they intensively prepare for the many performances of the season.

Concert Choir singers are focused young adults who are adept music readers and capable of singing their own parts independently. Performances include seasonal concerts and concerts with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. The choir may also represent Jacksonville at various community events or travel to perform outside of Jacksonville.

Auditions are held by appointment May through August for the following school year. There is no fee to audition. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need.

“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

“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

“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

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

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent
