JCC Alumni are Reaching
New Heights of Excellence
All graduating singers leave a legacy that echoes in the rehearsal spaces and performance halls whenever JCC singers gather to make extraordinary music. JCC alumni are reaching new heights of excellence in their academic and musical studies as well as their careers.
Upon graduating from high school, JCC singers have attended a variety of universities and conservatories including schools such as Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Jacksonville University, University of North Florida, University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, Stetson, University of Florida, The Hartt School, Appalachian State University, and the University of British Columbia. Many alumni pursue degrees in vocal performance, music theory, composition, musical theatre, political science, nursing as well as pre-professional degrees in business and medicine. Summers bring opportunities to further their educations at programs such as the Tanglewood Institute at Boston University where skills are honed and refined.
JCC alumni can be seen performing worldwide including venues as far away as the Czech Republic as well as local professional stages. Many alumni have made music their occupations as composers, singers, music educators and concert hall managers.
Singing in JCC “began a love and appreciation for music that foreshadowed my future career in opera” says Brittany Fouche (left) of Opera Saratoga and Des Moines Metro Opera. Another alumna shares “JCC has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me to discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.” JCC singers and alumni have developed leadership skills, positive character traits and expressed these qualities well beyond their youth.
