Our History

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 five different styles of choirs who have performed full concerts. Themes have run the gamut from patriotic, to Christmas,  classical, Broadway, gospel, Disney, songs from the ’60s, and ’70s hits! Choir members have the opportunity to give back to the community by performing for over 100 nonprofit organizations at no cost! Our organization is community-based and our choir is non-auditioned, so anyone age 18+ can join.

While her husband was in the United States Marine Corps, they were stationed in North Carolina for 7 years. During that time, she was invited to join the American Military Spouses Choir and has performed with them since 2012.
