30 Years of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir The Indianapolis Children’s Choir was founded on the belief that all children have the potential for incredible artistry. Over the past 30 years, the ICC has been recognized locally and throughout the world for its impressive musical accomplishments. But it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that the impressive musicality of the singers is only the most visible part of the ICC’s impact. The process of disciplined rehearsal and artistic study creates a vehicle for the pursuit of excellence, and also affects personal and social development. Students learn to believe in themselves, to express a deep part of themselves, and to bring beauty to the world around them.
