Being part of the WCC had been one of the greatest experiences of my life, both personally and musically. The beautiful music and the professionalism of the WCC is beyond doubt. Not only was I able to develop my singing skills and the discipline of a musician, I had the opportunity to perform at the White House and the Kennedy Centre of performing Arts, among others. Even today, 5 years since I last sang with the choir, I still find myself constantly singing the songs I used to sing with the choir. The commitment of the WCC, however, transcends mere musical excellence. Being with the WCC was more than being with a great choir. It was about being in a culture where people from different backgounds come together as one to work towards a common vision. In addition, the choir's enourmous efforts in promoting peace must not go unmentioned. My experiences with WCC has taught me to reach out to others, contribute to the society, and play a role in making the world a better place. These are lessons that I know I will carry with me for the rest of my lives.

I sang with the World Children’s Choir for ten years – from elementary through high school. My family and I made wonderful friends who we are still close to today. First and foremost, in my opinion, I learned how to sing, how to love and appreciate vocal performance and beautiful music, and the importance of music in the development and well-roundedness of children. As a child I had the opportunity to sing at the Kennedy Center, White House, Carnegie Hall, Constitution Hall and more. We sang with and for Denyce Graves, John Denver, Whitney Houston, US Presidents and First Ladies. The choir provided these experiences that I would not have otherwise had. The WCC established a musical foundation - I studied music and voice in college and sing professionally today.

The Great!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Offer scholarship funds to all children who would cherish the opportunity to sing but for whom it is financially out of reach. The choir could bring the message of peace through song by travelling worldwide.

I was a member of this choir for 8 years and I would not be the person or singer I am today with out WCC. The choir sings in many different languages and has a very diverse group of singers. As a member I felt honored to be in such a rich musical and cultural learning environment. Every time I sung in a concert with WCC I felt like we were making absolutely beautiful music, as well as passing on a message of hope and love for the community. Sandy and Jim are both extremely dedicated and talented people who have succeeded in creating an enjoyable, enriching experience for the choir and its many audiences.

i had had more time to give to the choir. this choir creates beautiful music because all the members are extremely dedicated and willing to give their time to rehearse and perform. WCC truly feels like a professional choir in this way.

The World Children Choir is a wonderful organization for children. I provides children with a very structured enviroment to improve their musical education. The core values espoused by World Children Choir are positive ones for the participants as well as for their public. The World Children Choir is able to educate children accross a wide age spectrum from the very young junior choir to the budding adults in the opera ensemble. To make this work a certain amount of discipline and is certainly enforced. Being a member of the WCC or a parent of a singer requires a great deal of commitment in terms of time and resources (some children do have scholarships). This is made clear to both the parents and the singers who enroll in the choir.
