Singers are brought together from numerous backgrounds to achieve a common goal—artistic and educational excellence.
In the Beginning
In 1973, Jocelyn Basse created the Children of Peace Choristers to meet the need for an extra-curricular choral opportunity for area youth. Incorporated in 1984 as the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir (FWCC), the choir has expanded to nearly 250 singers from 85 schools. FWCC members not only gain exceptional music skills, but learn about history, culture, foreign language, poetry, team-building and leadership.
The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir teaches music literacy to children from diverse backgrounds through song and performance. We strive to be recognized as one of the finest choirs in the nation because of our excellence in musical education, the diversity of our membership and the quality of our contributions to the community’s cultural life.
