Do you know a child who loves to sing?
Welcome to the wonderful world of children singing! The goal of the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus is to introduce and develop a love of artistic singing in the children of the First Coast. Through the rehearsal and performance of music representing many cultures and styles, our world is enriched and expanded. It is our hope that your experience in the JCC will bring rich and lasting memories to you and your family.
While prior musical training is not necessary to participate in the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, an audition is required. Children will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, maturity and readiness.
You do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. The 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.
Auditions are by appointment only. Visit the website at http://www.JaxChildrensChorus.org/audition or call us to schedule your appointment today.
January 9, 10, 11 from 3-6pm
January 16, 17, 18 from 3-6pm
All auditions will be held at the JCC offices downtown.
