KCC Membership

The Choir is meant to be a positive learning experience for the singers, one that they will carry with them throughout their lifetime. The members of the Choir should learn the meaning of “commitment” and “responsibility.” They should feel a sense of pride at being in this very special Choir and not take their membership lightly. Enrollment in KCC is for the season which begins in August and generally concludes with the Spring Concert. Each member is expected to remain active and committed to the program for the entire term. These young people will be sharing some wonderful times together both musically and socially.

Mission Statement



Vision Statement

The Kettering Children’s Choir is a choral organization whose mission is to educate the talented young singers of the Miami Valley and to build an appreciation for musical excellence.

The Kettering Children’s Choir will be known throughout Ohio as a premier vocal ensemble and choral school with structured musical training and high quality standards of artistic performance and music appreciation. Participation of talented school-age singers will be sought throughout the Miami Valley region offering opportunities for: 

Growth in vocal technique 

Experience and performance in ensemble choral singing at the highest artistic level 

Exposure to multi-cultural repertoire as well as traditional literature 

Regional and international travel related to performance 

The creation of a “singing heart” in each child

The Kettering Children’s Choir is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance.

 

As an organization, we embrace what makes each of our singers unique. Singers explore diversity in both membership and repertoire performed. We believe our differences (age, race, ethnicity, disability, creed, sexual orientation, or gender identity) bind us together, make us stronger, and provide opportunities to build personal friendships with others outside of our community.

 

All singers and staff members have a responsibility to continually treat others with dignity and respect, and all are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion and acceptance.
