Columbus Children’s Choir

For Kindergarten through 12th grade, Columbus Children’s Choir is the premier organization for children’s choral education in Central Ohio. We provide talented singers the opportunity to explore music and expand their musical skills to the highest level of their interest and ability.

Testimonials

It was an honor to work with Columbus Children's Choir. They sing with a lot more than confidence. They sing with a humble radiance. It is rare. It is special. And it is beautiful.

– Nick Page
 

Singers who are part of CCC become musically literate which of course supports their overall musicianship. They also learn how to be better vocalists as their voices grow & mature. The directors are qualified, certified music educators who teach age appropriate literature for each choir.

– Amy Johnston

Columbus Children’s Choir is a highly polished musical group. They are always well prepared and sing with perfect intonation and musicianship. ‘Excellent’ is the best word to describe them!
