Founded in 1980 by Dr. Mary Goetze and Dr. Jean Sinor, the mission of the Indiana University Children's Choir is to teach young people to value and experience excellent singing through musical activities which develop skills, sharing, self-expression, and personal growth. This goal will result in a lifelong appreciation of music. IUCC is committed to introducing children to the western tradition of choral music along with a wide variety of musical cultures from around the world.
