The mission of Centennial Children's Chorus is to provide quality music education with the goal of attaining artistic excellence in choral music performance. Our organization endeavors to enrich the lives of youth from all religious, racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds. The program strives to foster the personal and social growth of its members and to promote their sense of self-esteem, discipline, accomplishment, and pride.
Founded in 1983, Centennial Children's Chorus focuses on promoting excellence through music, enriching the lives of over 2,500 children, and many more family members, friends, and musicians who have experienced our concerts. Our singers come from all over the northern Colorado area and even Wyoming. In addition to frequent performances in Northern Colorado, CCC has blessed audiences across the United States and are recognized internationally. These young singers grow up to become inspiring, caring leaders, who continue to mentor and encourage aspiring younger singers.
Originally the choir was started under the umbrella of the Larimer Choral Society. In 2010 CCC received our own non-profit status, followed by affirmation as a 501(c)(3) in 2012
Mishakawa owner Dani Grant stated, "CCC is such a longstanding and respected youth music organization. My three daughters have all participated in CCC, and the impact on their confidence, performance abilities, and leadership has been so valuable."
"In his 5 years with CCC, my son has developed a passion for music, established life-long friends, and learned to collaborate with talented singers from all over Northern Colorado." - Sala Voce parent
"I love to see the growth in musical ability and appreciation. The lessons in commitment and discipline necessary to work with a group, to train and improve toward a definite goal, and the satisfaction of seeing that goal be realized (in a performance). Their satisfaction in doing something pleasing and valuable for others (the good performances)." - Cantare & Sala Voce parent
"The singing is absolutely top notch." - Jubilate & Sala Voce parent
