Founded in 1989, Princeton Girlchoir has grown into the area’s premier training and performance choir for girls, with over 300 choristers participating in seven choirs each year.
Fueled by the power of a girl's voice, Princeton Girlchoir presents extraordinary performances at home and throughout the world. These choirs present music from a wide array of genres, conductors and composers, all while educating the musician, building confidence, and fostering a life-long love of singing together.
Princeton Girlchoir is comprised of seven choirs made up of girls from 3rd through 12th grade, drawing singers together from over 75 schools in Central New Jersey and Bucks County.
New members are selected each year by audition, beginning in the spring and sometimes continuing into the month of September. Once chosen, our conductors place them into the choir where they will be most successful; this decision is made with some regard to the chorister’s age, but more significantly based on her stage of musical development.
- Grace Notes – 3rd grade through 5th grade
- Eighth Notes – 4th grade through 6th grade
- Quarter Notes – 5th grade through 7th grade)
- Semi-Tones – 6th through 9th
- Concert Choir – 7th through 10th grade
- Cantores – 10th grade through 12th grade
- Ensemble – A select chamber group of mostly high school aged girls (girls may participate in Ensemble concurrently with other choirs)
Girls are reassessed annually to determine their musical development and choir advancement. See the Redbook for additional information regarding placement and advancement.
Throughout their weekly rehearsals, the choirs grow as a team and work together to create a beautiful ensemble sound. The singers are challenged to develop their active listening, their musical flexibility, and the breadth of their tone palette. The exciting music that the choirs make as a result, and the powerful connections the girls make with one another, make their years with Princeton Girlchoir truly unforgettable.
