Mission, Vision & Values

Our Mission

SVCC nurtures young people by developing excellent musicianship, creating artistic choral performances, and fostering meaningful relationships.

We believe… singing builds community. Music enriches all areas of a person’s life. Youth and children have tremendous capacity for aesthetic experience. They can be profoundly moved by music. All young people can experience musical excellence. Quality choral singing builds individual musicianship. Youth and children are naturally artistic and want to express themselves. Singing should be a life-long activity. Singing well builds self-esteem. Singing quality repertoire encourages musical excellence. Choral singing requires discipline and fosters commitment to the group.

We value… artistry, excellence, musical independence, discipline, potential, beauty, high expectations, commitment, joy, soaring spirits, and the wholeness of young people.

We envision… a world that appreciates musical artistry and excellence; A world where all people have an opportunity to sing; A world where singing unifies community; A world where choral music is valued.
