While prior musical training is not necessary to participate in the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, an audition is required for singers in grades 2-12. Children will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, maturity, and readiness. Singers do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. The 15-minute audition process is quick and simple. A conductor will listen for the singer’s ability to match pitches, to learn a simple tune and to hold one’s voice part against others. Here's a little video preview of the audition process.

There is no fee to audition. However, upon placement and registration, tuition is charged to cover a portion of the actual cost of the program. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need. 

Upcoming Auditions:

2/24 - 5:45p - 6:45p - Southside Shepherd of the Woods

2/25 - 4:30p - 5:30p - First Coast Christian

2/27 - 4:30p - 5:30p - Downtown

“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

“Music is such a valuable part of life. The way it enriches one’s life and encourages creativity, I do not believe anything else can do as much. We in Jacksonville are certainly blessed to have the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus.”

Scott C. Snyder, President, Compass Consulting Group

“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

“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

“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
