1st year group of NOCCC

North Orange County Children's Choir was established in 1989, and changed its name in 2005 to New Orange County Children's Choir (NOCCC). NOCCC is a state registered, non-profit organization, with the goals of providing learning and performing opportunities as well as promoting artistic appreciation of choral singing among our youngsters.

The choir has about 140 members, ages six and up from throughout Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Rehearsals are every Friday evening at the South Coast Chinese Cultural Center in Irvine. A grand finale showcasing all groups is regularly presented during our annual concert in June. Generous financial support from our sponsors allows us to perform in many special choral concerts and hold seasonal gatherings such as picnics, talent shows, holiday parties, and family concerts, as well as music camps for our more advanced groups.

Our music curriculum includes basic vocal and choral technique, rhythm and ear training, sight singing, and music appreciation. In order to facilitate progressive and complete choral training, members sing in one of five groups. While younger singers are musically motivated in the fun atmosphere of Preparatory Group, older choristers move on to receive formal choral training in the Junior and Intermediate Groups. Concert Group and Ensemble Group then provide advanced choral training to qualified members. It is our ultimate goal that, through this progressive training program, all our members will enjoy a fun-filled musical childhood and continue to participate in choral singing in the future.

For over two decades, the professional guidance of our music directors and teachers, unconditionally support of our sponsors, devoted involvement of our parents, and ardent spirit of our members have enabled us to advance closer and closer towards our goals. We welcome you to join us, and make our little adventure yours too.

Congratulations, NOCCC!
