Some girls were born to sing and we want to celebrate that! When music makes her eyes light up, there’s no need to be silent. Music is powerful and the Calgary Girls Choir wants to give our girls a voice. Established in 1995, the Calgary Girls Choir has been providing outstanding choral instruction for girls and young women aged 5 and up ever since leading them to a high level of musical accomplishment and inner confidence.
Not only does the choir empower girls while offering them the pleasures and possibilities of music, it helps develop confidence, integrity, and discipline. Ms. Elaine Quilichini, Artistic Director, founded the choir in 1995 and brings reputable, professional, and strong vocal training with the support of professional accompanists, a dedicated administration team, and a strong Board of Directors. The Calgary Girls Choir has become an award-winning and internationally renowned choir.
The focus of the Calgary Girls Choir is on an excellent repertoire and a child-centred approach. Girls will develop a strong vocal technique, tone, and musical literacy, becoming the best they can be. The close-knit community fosters friendships and inspires each girl to develop their personal poise and passion. Consequently, the choir performances reflect their enthusiasm for music and their shared love of singing.
Depending on age, there are three choirs within the Calgary Girls Choir. Children aged 5 to grade 4 will join Dolce, a program that is active and fun! Girls from grade 4 to 7 join Viva to advance their musical skills and build a wide and varied range of repertoire. Brava is for girls from grade 7 to university and it develops beautiful musical literacy while learning an amazing repertoire of music. Rehearsals with the Calgary Girls Choir take place once a week for each level. At any age, girls will be inspired and empowered through music and build life-long teamwork skills, all while having a marvellous time!
No matter the age, girls in the choir will learn how to sing correctly and in tune, developing their musical ear. They won’t do it by simply mimicking songs, but they will learn how to read sheet music, to listen to each other, and to sing in a group to create beautiful harmonies.
The Calgary Girls Choir is making it easier than ever to get involved. Registration is ongoing and lessons can be joined now. On September 17, 18, and 19, 2019, they are also inviting you to “Come Do Re Mi with CGC!” If you have a girl aged 5 and up who loves to sing, come out from September 17 – 19, 2019, to see, hear, and experience a trial class event. Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s out there, but this trial class will give your daughter first-hand experience about the Calgary Girls Choir. You can sign up here.
So, is your girl born to sing?! Does she want to develop her voice, make friends, and have fun? Then it’s time to check out the Calgary Girls Choir!
