The Georgia Children’s Chorus (GCC) was founded in 1998 as a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c) (3) organization. In residence at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia (UGA), GCC is represented by an active Board of Directors comprised of community leaders, professionals in the arts, and dedicated parents; whom have guided and championed the organization since its establishment.
GCC is the singular children’s community chorus in the area, who provides experiences beyond those available to young singers specifically in rural areas, small schools, and homeschooling organizations. The singers in the Chorus are selected through an audition process and placed in one of four choirs selected by singing ability and age, regardless of their capability to afford tuition, uniforms, and other fees associated with performing as a member of a choral group. The Chorus strives to maintain approximately 100 singers between the ages of 7-18, representing 12 counties in Northeast Georgia.
