Calgary Girls Choir offers exceptional choral education. Their Kodály-based approach teaches in-tune singing, vocal technique, inner hearing, musical literacy, and artistic expression. Choristers are provided with supplementary aural, written, and video materials to help ensure their individual progress in all areas of the program. Girls will develop and improve their musicianship (literacy), vocal development, and artistic performance skills.

But it’s also a place of belonging where individual voices can blend in harmony through the unique and powerful connection that binds choral singers together. As singers create beauty, they experience joy and communion that is profound and lasting.

Hearing other voices helps one to find and develop one’s own voice: belonging to a choir provides many opportunities to have fun, be social and enjoy learning together! Singers in the Calgary Girls Choir are enthusiastic about their experiences and development as members of this exceptional choral program. Listen to what other girls have to say about this program.

“I like singing. I get really stressed at school and choir really helps me. The songs are beautiful.” – Dolce chorister

“Choir is a place that lets me pour my heart into singing at the same time as learning. At choir I can be myself and have fun while doing it. I have amazing strong friendships that might never ever break and these people understand me in a singing way and a person way. From my friends, to going on trips and singing beautiful songs, choir is amazing.” – Viva chorister

“When we perform, it’s just pure happiness and all my fears go away. I feel a great sense of community – the friendships and bonds I have made and all of the experiences and memories will never leave me. The feeling of almost flying that comes with it is what I believe makes me love choir so much!” – Brava chorister

Register your daughter today and watch something beautiful develop. It is a common thing to hear singers and their parents say, “I only wish we had found this choir sooner.” It’s been a challenging few years for our kids and it’s time to make emotional health and joy part of our life again. The importance of fostering a supportive community and the emotional and mental health benefits of singing are key features of the Calgary Girls Choir. When you join your voice in the song, it is a moment like no other.
