SILAS LEWIS

Interim Program Assistant
353-1636, ext. 1 | Email

From a young age, Silas Lewis learned to appreciate the beauty of music. His dad would regularly play worship music on his guitar as Silas and his siblings sang along. Annually, Silas and his family would sing Christmas carols for local neighbors and for those lodging at the Jacksonville nonprofit, Gabriel House. Silas started choral singing in high school with the men’s chorus at the Bolles School in Jacksonville. The beauty of choral singing inspired Silas to search for more opportunities to sing. Encouraged by his mom, Silas joined the Jacksonville Children’s Young Men’s Chorus and Touring Choir. The JCC gave Silas an appreciation for excellence in music as well as choral conducting. In his senior year of high school, Silas transferred to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts with a focus on vocal music. Silas received the full-tuition Kinne Scholarship from the JCC and Jacksonville University. Now a Junior in college, Silas attends Jacksonville University, where he sings with the student-led choral group, Infinitus.
 

“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 M., JCC Alum

“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

“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.”
