Westrick Music Academy provides opportunities to grow in a supportive, inclusive, and joyous environment through the experience of musical excellence.
Formerly known as Princeton Girlchoir, Westrick Music Academy (WMA) is the new umbrella organization that houses:
- Princeton Girlchoir
- Princeton Boychoir
- Music Education Programs
The Music Education Programs offered by WMA are designed to serve both members of the organization’s flagship choirs and those in the broader community. With expanded offerings over the coming years, we plan to provide high quality musical experiences for all ability levels and all ages.
Music Education Programs
In addition to the Girlchoir and Boychoir, WMA offers several programs for choristers. These help choristers explore new and engaging ways to build and strengthen their musicianship skills. Each program is devoted to provide singers with practical tools they can use in rehearsals and in future musical endeavors.
