The Central Coast Children’s Choir will offer tuition scholarships to children who want to sing and perform in SLO County but may not be able to because of financial hardship. The scholarships are supported by a grant of $1,500 from the Central Coast Funds for Children.

“We truly appreciate the generosity of CCFC’s grant that allows our choir to offer more local children the chance to receive a music education, perform onstage, make new friends, develop self-discipline and build personal confidence,” said 2018 CCCC President Miller Newlon.

The Central Coast Children’s Choir is made up of five distinct choirs, each catering to different age groups, skill levels and voice ranges.
