ABOUT THE CHORUS
The internationally acclaimed Sacramento Children’s Chorus (SCC), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, provides excellence in choral music education and performance opportunities to talented children in the greater Sacramento community.
Singers participate in a progressive program accommodating the various ages and performance abilities. Membership is drawn from Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado counties where singers attend a variety of public and private elementary, middle and high schools.
The SCC was founded in 1993 and has been in continuous operation since that time, growing from its original chorus of forty young singers to four levels with 150 students from the greater Sacramento community. SCC maintains a program that provides each singer the opportunity to progress and develop at an individual pace. As student’s abilities increase, their opportunities for performance expand.
NOTE: After COVID, SCC made the pivot to rehearse on Zoom. Many of our singers took a break until we could singer in person. Our choir now is one multi-age choir. For our younger singer, SCC has a reciprocal agreement with the youth choir at St. John’s Lutheran Church.
In addition to presenting three seasonal concerts each year, the SCC has performed with the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra, Sacramento Ballet, and Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera and at the Sacramento Jazz Festivals. Other noteworthy civic performances include the opening games of the Sacramento River Cats, the memorial services of Congressman Robert Matsui and Sacramento Mayor Joseph Serna, the inaugurations of Gov. Gray Davis and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the several Openings of the Legislative Session.
