My daughter spent 10 years singing with SDCC and I served as a parent volunteer and on the Board of Directors as I so appreciate all the the choir has done for my daughter. Not only did she develop a beautiful voice, gained knowledge of choral music and music theory, she served our community. SDCC was involved in some fabulous community service opportunites. My daughter traveled with the choir, making joyful music all over the world. She made wonderful friends and learned the value of community service. We will forever have a special place in out hearts for SDCC and beautiful memories to last a lifetime. I will forever be grateful for the opportunites SDCC gave to my daughter!

Our daughter, now 11, has been in the choir since first grade. She's loved all of her conductors, even while chafing sometimes at the discipline. Now she's skilled in music reading, singing and professional demeanor, some of which she learned without even realizing that what she was experiencing was instruction according to a clear methodology - she just thought she was practicing and having fun. Though she has started and stopped several activities, including violin, which she does at school mainly to remain social with her musical friends, she's constant and dedicated with her singing. I don't know how far she'll go, but I won't be surprised if she keeps it up for her entire academic career and beyond.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been a chaperon at probably 95% of the concerts that my daughter has been in. I've enjoyed helping make sure the concerts have come off well, and it's been good getting to know the conductors, staff and other parents.
