For grades 4-8

The Columbus Indiana Children’s Choir (CICC) is an auditioned group of 160 children from grades 4 through 8 in Bartholomew County and surrounding counties.

The program has two choirs, the Concert Choir for more advanced singers and the Descant Choir for beginning members. Each choir rehearses once a week and performs locally three or four times each semester. Advanced singers are offered tour opportunities – past tours have included: Carnegie Hall (New York City), Washington DC, Western National Parks Tour, Ireland, Canada, and central Europe.

The program is a cooperative effort between the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic and the Indianapolis Children’s Choir.
