This spring, it’s time to bring back the joy! The Calgary Girls Choir is inviting girls to come “Do-Re-Mi” and try it for free! It’s time to sing together again, with harmony, community, and a whole lot of fun! Your daughter will find her place, develop confidence, integrity, and life-long friendships. She will also have a wonderful time and experience the pride that comes from challenge, accomplishment, and meaningful experiences.

The Calgary Girls Choir creates 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. Adding your voice to the collective harmony provides the creative satisfaction that was lost when live singing was impossible under the pandemic. Being part of the great and beautiful sound builds confidence and bolsters the spirit.

Calgary Girls Choir offers exceptional choral education. Their Kodály-based approach teaches in-tune singing, vocal technique, inner hearing, musical literacy, and artistic expression. Rehearsals will continue to follow AHS regulations and prioritize safety. The emphasis and focus will be on live singing, with an option to be online, as needed. 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.

Ms. Elaine Quilichini, Artistic Director, founded the choir in 1995 and brings a reputable, professional, and passionate commitment to the choirs. She has the support of professional accompanists, a dedicated administration team, and a strong Board of Directors. The Calgary Girls Choir is an award-winning and internationally renowned choir, known for beautiful tone quality, challenging and varied repertoire, and superb vocal technique. Singers in the Calgary Girls Choir are enthusiastic about their experiences and development as members of this exceptional choral program.

Organizational Mandate

Teamwork and cooperation are the cornerstones of a choir. In this non-competitive environment, choristers are encouraged, supported, and challenged. Their confidence develops as they grow together in a nurturing environment. The Calgary Girls Choir is passionate about inspiring and empowering young women through the pursuit of musical excellence. Currently, there are four choir levels: Dolce, for Grade 1 – 4; Viva, for Grades 4 – 7; Brava for Grades 7+, and Espressa – a new women’s choir for ladies 19+. 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!

This spring, girls ages 5 and up can register for a free trial class to see first-hand the benefits of Calgary Girls Choir. Trial classes run March 30 and 31, and April 12, 13, 14, and 19, 2022. Register your daughter today and see 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 two 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 as a part of the Calgary Girls Choir. When you join your voice in the song, it is a moment like no other.

As a Kodály-based program, the CGC echoes the words of Zoltan Kodály, “Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime.” The Calgary Girls Choir wants to ensure that young choristers continue to be awakened to the joy and beauty of music in these challenging and unprecedented times.

It has never been more important.
