The Southern California Children’s Chorus was founded in 1996 as a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is “enhancing children’s lives through distinguished choral music education and world-class performance.” SCCC currently serves nearly 300 children, ages 5 through 20. Through a program stressing musical aptitude, teamwork, discipline, self-confidence and personal growth, SCCC strives to develop the entire character of its young singers.
A recipient of 3 Emmy awards, SCCC has gained international acclaim for the quality of its music education program. Our choruses are featured frequently at Orange County’s Segerstrom Hall and have thrilled audiences at Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, Westminster Abbey and the White House. In addition, SCCC has contributed singers for Touchstone and MGM films, television productions and commercials, orchestral, adult choral, and opera productions, rock music recordings, and many Disney events, both televised and live. Its Emmy-winning performances include a collaboration with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith in a stirring rendition of “Dream On” for ESPN’s E:60 special, “Boston Strong,” as well as a live performance of “What a Wonderful World” with Esperanza Spalding at the 84th annual Academy Awards.
