Help us change the lives of children and the cultural landscape of the First Coast through music.

The mission of The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus is to provide high-quality choral music education for children of diverse backgrounds, fostering teamwork, self-discipline, accomplishment and pride while filling an important cultural need in the community and sharing the beauty of the choral art form through artistically excellent performances.

The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus is a not-for-profit community resource focusing on music education, appreciation and performance opportunities for children living in and around the Northeast Florida Region. Founded in 1995 at Jacksonville University with 16 voices, the list of the Chorus’ music education initiatives continues to grow in order to meet the needs of the community’s children. 

The Chorus’ program impacts over 550 area children annually from a diversity of racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. The performance choir program draws its membership from five counties and currently represents more than 180 schools. Five choir levels provide music and enrichment opportunities to meet the individual needs of singers, and more than 350 children participated last year. Approximately 35% of the membership receives scholarship support.
