Interested in joining the CCC family?

We would love to have you! With three different ensembles, there is sure to be a place for treble-voiced young singers between ages 8 and 18. We are seeking young singers who are excited to make excellent music and willing to commit to weekly rehearsals from August to May.

New Singer Form

To join, just fill out our New Singer Form so that we can schedule a time to meet for a singing placement.  Placements take about 15 minutes, and singers don’t need to prepare anything special. One of our teachers will guide the singer through pitch matching exercises and vocal range exploration.

Through our financial aid program, annual tuition can be adjusted on a sliding scale according to family income.  CCC and Arts+ are committed to providing the opportunity for any student who wants to join the choir to be able to so, regardless of financial means!  We also provide convenient payment plan options.

For more information or questions, please contact registration@artsplus.org.

FAQs

How often are rehearsals?

Harmony, Lyric, and Concert Choir rehearsals are once-weekly.

How many performances are there?

It depends on the ensemble.  All of our choirs participate in a large combined concert each semester.  Additionally, our choirs often have the opportunity to perform around the community.  Concert Choir is our busiest ensemble, with an additional 2-4 performances each semester.  Harmony and Lyric typically have one or two community performances.

Do I need to buy a uniform?

Singers in Harmony, Lyric, and Concert will need to have CCC concert attire.  We do have an exchange program for singers to trade out uniforms as they outgrow their old ones.  Concert Choir also has matching polos for some community performances. @YourSchool programs will receive a CCC T-Shirt for performances, and will just need to have dark, ankle-length pants for performance (blue jeans, black pants, etc.).

How much will singers need to practice outside of rehearsals?

On occasions, singers will need to practice on their own, especially when making sure that music for a concert is all memorized.  We try to make outside practice time minimum, but sometimes we will need parent support to make sure that music is ready to go.

Do I need to know how to read music before joining?

No!  At CCC, we believe in teaching the “whole” singer, including equipping our choristers with the knowledge to be able to read music on their own.

Is there financial aid available?

Through our financial aid program, annual tuition can be adjusted on a sliding scale according to family income.  CCC and Arts+ are committed to providing the opportunity for any student who wants to join the choir to be able to so, regardless of financial means!  We also provide convenient payment plan options.

A Day in the Life of a CCC Singer

Our singers come from all across the Charlotte area and are busy with numerous interests - from sports to their school music programs, religious activities, part-time jobs, and much more.  But our singers are also firmly committed to being a part of the success of CCC.

At our once-weekly rehearsals, our singers are not only learning new songs, but also developing music-reading skills, performance practices, teamwork, and creative problem solving.  Dr. Potter challenges our singers to be the best they can be at all times as they sing, move, and work together to make excellent music.

Our younger choirs, Harmony and Lyric, also spend 30 minutes in our Musicianship Class, learning how to read music and even to sight-sing (looking at a new piece of music for the first time and being able to sing without having anyone demonstrate it first).  This might sound like a difficult class, but don’t worry - Mrs. Bethany teaches all of this through exciting games and activities!

In CCC, it’s all about making friends and then making amazing music all together!  CCC nights are warm, inviting, filled with games, and sure to be a place for young singers to grow to be the best they can be.
