BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL MUSICAL FOUNDATION FOR JACKSONVILLE’S CHILDREN 

A Staff Member’s Perspective On The JCC 

My first experience with the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus was back in 2014, when I sent a small group of singers to participate in the First Coast Honors Choir Festival. Being new to the area, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after that first year I was hooked. It was such a positive experience for my students! They got to learn such lush repertoire, collaborate with students outside their school community, and work with a nationally known clinician. 

Since that time, I have had the opportunity to view many JCC concerts and festivals, and each time I am always in awe of the musicianship that Mr. Dailey and the rest of the staff are able draw from the singers. We get to witness the product, but I feel there are few that know and understand the process it takes to achieve that level of performance. The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus isn’t just giving musical experiences, but also a musical foundation for present and future success.

“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

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne , Former Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“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 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

“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
