Southern California Children’s Chorus
“Enriching children’s lives through distinguished choral music education and world-class performance.” The Southern California Children’s Chorus (SCCC), Orange County’s only chorus dedicated exclusively to meeting the educational and performance needs of children, seeks to do more than introduce youth to music and singing. It strives to enrich the lives of its members through programs stressing musical aptitude, teamwork, discipline, self-confidence and personal growth.
Currently there are more than 250 young singers affiliated with SCCC, ranging from 5 to 18 years of age, and encompassing six levels of sequential vocal and choral instruction. The children come from a wide geographic area of Southern California, sometimes traveling over an hour to attend weekly rehearsals. In August 2017, they were excited to move to the Orange County Music & Dance building in Irvine, which houses their office and rehearsal space.
The SCCC has an outstanding faculty of five choral directors who are highly skilled in their chosen field of children’s choral music. They provide the young singers with a caring, nurturing environment in which a full range of music can be learned. The choristers are immersed in compositions in multiple languages from many cultures, with themes ranging from the classics to folk and contemporary music.
