The Rolla Community Children’s Choirs are celebrating their 13th year under the direction of RCAS Artistic and Executive Director Jeff Sandquist. RCCC provides an opportunity for talented singers from public, parochial, and home-schools to make music together in our community. Singers from the RCCC are regularly selected for state, division, and national honor choirs, and go on to sing in school, church, and other community ensembles, some even go on to sing professionally. This year RCCC singers will have the opportunity to audition for the first ever Missouri All-State elementary choir (4th and 5th grades), the SWACDA Division Honor Choirs (grades 5 -12) in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the Missouri Youth Honor Choirs next summer.
The Rolla Choral Arts Society provides opportunities for singers from age nine – 90.
