Chandler Children's Choir

Who We Are

The Chandler Children’s Choir (CCC) is an auditioned community choir founded in 2008 with an original group of 27 children who love singing. Today, CCC continues its dedication to the vocal education of youth with our focus on vocal fundamentals, classic repertoire, and varied performances. We are now the premier children’s choir in the East Valley.

If your child was born to perform, learn how to become a part of CCC. We hold auditions twice a year; learn more on our Auditions page.

Our Program

Our three choirs are comprised of girls and boys with treble voices. We rehearse each Thursday at Desert Cross Lutheran Church located at 8600 South McClintock Drive in Tempe (map).

Junior Choir | Ages 7–10 | 3:50–5:10 p.m. or 4:40–6:00 p.m. 
Encore Choir | Ages 10–15 | 5:00–6:25 p.m. 
Cantus Choir | Ages 13–18 | 6:15–8:15 p.m.

We expect all singers to attend sight-singing classes where they will learn to read music, solfege (do-re-mi), and other skills. We offer these classes in addition to regular rehearsals at no extra charge.
