Mr. Jeffrey Braconnier, President & Founder

Contact Jeff:

Jeff is the President and Founder at Catholic Community Choir. In 2007, Jeff created an opportunity to provide his first choir at St. Kevin Parish and the surrounding areas with a musical theater experience through his first production, Seussical Jr. Since then, Jeff has been the face of Catholic Community Choir, ensuring that the mission created at the start continues. Jeff has a great love for CCC and embraces the opportunity to drive to work every day. 

Now that CCC has grown tremendously, Jeff has the opportunity to work with all members of our team, both staff and volunteers. As he did from the start, Jeff still leads our vocals for our performances and special events. You can still find him behind the piano, cheering our members on as they prepare for all of our productions. Jeff believes strongly in empowering our youth and encouraging them to follow their dreams. Since the beginning of CCC, he has always said that he just wants CCC to be a home for everyone who is ready to be themselves, practice their craft and celebrate their faith along the way. 

Jeff is heavily involved in the community. He is often seen at St. Kevin Parish where he serves as Pastoral Assistant. You may also see Jeff at various parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia where he leads music for Masses and numerous events. When not working, Jeff enjoys being with his family and friends. His wife, Tara and daughter, Mila live in Springfield and you will often see them throughout the community. #ShineOnCCC!

Miss Steph – Forever CCC’s Set Designer


Miss Steph (Braconnier) was a 2007 graduate of Cardinal O’Hara and a 2014 Graduate of Neumann University (College of Nursing). Miss Steph joined the Catholic Community Choir (CCC) family in 2010 as the Scenic Designer. Miss Steph was an art teacher at CCC Summer Camps each year. Miss Steph also joined the production team for the O’Hara shows in the spring of 2016, which she loved so much. Known for her spunk and big heart, Miss Steph touched the lives of hundreds of children at both CCC and COHS. Miss Steph’s talents were seen through the 23 shows which she served as our Scenic Designer. Her inspiration and creative impression lives on in each set. Miss Steph gave her gifts and talents to so many and so many will forever be touched.

Miss Steph courageously fought Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) her entire life while also continually giving back to CCC. We suddenly lost Miss Steph on September 4, 2016. Since then, the CCC Family has continued to celebrate Miss Steph’s life and remember all that she gave back to CCC. We will forever #ShineforMissSteph! #CCCshines
