Princeton Girlchoir (PGC) is now accepting audition appointments for the 2017-2018 season. Any girl who will be entering grades 3-12 next fall is warmly welcomed.
The 2017-2018 season promises to be an exciting one, with concerts planned throughout the East Coast. The Performing Division choirs will also embark on a summer concert tour, with the location soon to be announced. Recent tours have taken the choirs to Hawaii, Colorado, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Trinidad in addition to last year’s trip to Ireland.
In addition to these performance opportunities, PGC offers a first-class music education to the choristers who participate in all six of their ensembles. Girls who have trained with PGC are regularly accepted into prestigious University music programs across the country. While most of PGC’s alumnae go on to successful careers outside of music, all benefit from the discipline, community, and female empowerment that has been the hallmark of Princeton Girlchoir for 28 years.
A strong desire to learn, a musical ear, and an eagerness to share music with others are key to a successful audition. Despite the many musical opportunities PGC offers during the year, the auditions remain low-key and enjoyable and no advance preparation is required. This year, girls will be asked to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," along with some exercises that demonstrate their vocal range, and to complete a few musical challenges to help our music directors understand their current level of musical ability.
Auditions for new choristers are scheduled throughout June at Princeton Day School, however, PGC will work with families who are unable to attend auditions on that date, to find an alternative. Interested choristers may also wish to attend Princeton Girlchoir’s Spring Concert Series on Friday, May 5, 7:00pm at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton and on Saturday, May 6, 7:00pm at Princeton University Chapel, to hear the beautiful music showcased by all six ensembles of the Princeton Girlchoir. These performances promise to be events filled with wonder and radiance; a special delight to the audience. For concert and ticketing information, visit www.princetongirlchoir.org
