Our Choirs

Primary Choir

The Primary Choir curriculum is designed to prepare Kindergarten and first-grade children to become musical in three ways:

1. Melodic – to have melodies in their heads and learn to coordinate their voices to sing those melodies.

2. Rhythmic – to feel the beat and its divisions and how that beat is grouped in either 2s or 3s.

3. Artistic – to be moved by music in the many ways music can elicit an emotional response.

Like the Training Choir, the Primary Choir is semester-based, with 10-week sessions in fall and spring. Each year, participating singers receive 24-30 hours of instruction and perform a brief concert twice a year.

Auditions are not required. Need-based scholarships are not available at this time. Space is limited.

“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

“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

“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.”
