Youth Programs

Singing City Children's Choir


The Singing City Children's Choir (SCCC), under the direction of Emily Sung, is a choral music education and performance program open to children at the James Rhoads Elementary School in West Philadelphia and, beginning this fall, the Wissahickon Charter School in Germantown.


Music from all styles and periods form the foundation for musical learning and serve as the basis for the curriculum. Concepts about music (melody, rhythm, harmony, timbre, dynamics, form, style and performance practice) and musical skills (singing, theory, sight reading, etc.) are taught throughout the rehearsals through singing, listening and analysis. Singing skill and musical understanding are essential components of the creative process and a fundamental resource basic to music education.
