In February of 2011, Central Florida Community Arts kicked off the first part of its five-tiered vision with the Central Florida Community Choir. Since that time, the choir has grown to over 400 voices in upwards of 5 different styles of choirs who have performed full concerts. Themes have run the gamut from patriotic, to Christmas, to classical, to Broadway, to gospel, to Disney, to 60s, and 70s! Choir members have the opportunity to give back to the community by performing for over 100 non-profit organizations at no cost! Our organization is community-based and our choir is non-auditioned, so anyone age 18+ can join.
For this Summer 2017 Season we are inviting performers ages 18 and up to join!
Here are the choir opportunities currently available for the Summer 2017 concert season:
