Children’s Choir Auditions: You can schedule an audition here.
The Circle City Children’s Choir (C4) is a Corona, CA-based children’s choir and music education program of the Circle City Chorale and was founded in 2014. Growing seasonally since its inception and currently split into three performance groups, it has become a vital part of the Circle City Chorale’s outreach mission to the community.
Through weekly rehearsals and various performance opportunities, children’s choir participants will gain an appreciation of music while learning basic music theory, the fundamentals of singing in a choir, proper vocal techniques, performance skills, and simple choreography. This constructive program teaches the value of persistence, self-discipline, and personal achievement and empowers children to strive for personal growth through its many solo opportunities.
