The Concert Choir is an advanced choir, open to boys and girls grades 5-12, by invitation only from the Artistic 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 with local and national guest artists. The choir may also represent Jacksonville at various community events or travel to perform outside of Jacksonville.
Auditions are held by appointment May through July or August for the following school year. Due to extensive repertoire and choreography, a week-long camp is held in late July/August in preparation for the upcoming season.
There is no fee to audition. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need.
