LCCC was founded by executive director, Dr. Melanie Williams and is accompanied by Mrs. Linda Keene. The choir is a 501-c-3 non-profit community choir administered by a volunteer board of directors.

Savannah Children’s Choir will join LCCC for their 10th Anniversary Concert . This guest choir from Savannah has just recently returned from a choral competition in Verona, Italy, and will share some of the choral works from that experience.   SCC has performed with the Savannah Sinfonietta, the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, several artists in residence, and they were a featured presenter at this year’s Georgia Music Educators In-Service Conference in Savannah in February. The chorus was founded in 2006 by Roger Moss, Artistic Director and Cuffy Sullivan, Executive Director. Their staff includes conductors Timothy Hall and Emmy Williams and Anne Acker, Accompanist.

Both choirs will perform individually for this concert and will also join forces on a few numbers. LCCC will present a choral set with a “water theme” in honor of our Lowcountry setting as well as feature a few outstanding young artists as soloists.

Auditions for LCCC’s Fall Semester will take place in May and August 2012. Please contact Dr. Williams for more info and scheduling an audition appointment.
