MISSION OF HOCKING COUNTY CHILDREN’S CHORUS
The Hocking County Children’s Chorus (HCCC) is a community based, non-profit organization that was founded in 1979. The mission of the chorus is to provide the children of Hocking County a culturally diverse musical experience, and an opportunity to explore and develop their own talents in music, performance, and theater.
A United Way Agency, the HCCC is open to all children of Hocking County in grades two through twelve. This includes children in public schools, private schools, digital academy, and those who are home schooled. The chorus is open to children of all abilities.
The HCCC reaches children who are interested in and/or have talent in the arts, but may not have the personal or financial resources to experience them.
Other than private lessons, there are no other community chorus or theater opportunities offered for the younger children of Hocking County. The chorus is committed to providing quality music instruction and strives to create an environment in which children can experience the joy of singing, develop confidence and become a vital part of a musical team. Children are also introduced to the basics of acting, choreography, and theater.
The HCCC works to enrich the lives of both the youth of Hocking County as well as its communities. The chorus performs at various community events throughout the year, represents Hocking County in the annual Southeastern Ohio Children’s Music Festival, and holds an annual Christmas Concert. All of these events are free of charge and open to the public.
Each spring, the HCCC presents a musical theater performance. General admission tickets are sold at $6.00 to help offset production costs. This past May, the children presented "The Sound of Music".
