About the Girl Choir
The Girl Choir is the premier singing ensemble for young women in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area. The Girl Choir provides its singers with a rich choral and cultural experience and aims to inspire young women through the creation of beauty. The Girl Choir has been extolled by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel as “imaginative, accessible, expressive, and entertaining.”
The Girl Choir has gained a reputation for delivering excellence in concert programming. The Girl Choir presents major performances in December and May, community performances throughout the year, and tours in spring and summer. The Girl Choir has premiered works by noted choral composers, performed with the Master Chorale of South Florida and the Symphony of the Americas, and performed at Walt Disney World, choral festivals, and other cultural destinations across North America. In 2015, the Girl Choir was named the "Rising Star" Nonprofit Organization of the Year for Broward County, Florida.
A high-quality music education is at the foundation of the Girl Choir’s unique sound. Its program of six performing ensembles gives each chorister sight-reading, ear training, and vocal production skills while developing artistry and teamwork. Rehearsals are held after school and on some weekends throughout the season.
The Girl Choir membership has grown every year since the founding of the organization. Currently, the Girl Choir serves 150 girls ages six through eighteen from thirty different cities across three counties in South Florida, representing diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Since its founding in 2005, the Girl Choir has provided the choral experience to more than 900 girls throughout the region.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, the Girl Choir of South Florida is a private, independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation governed by a Board of Trustees. The Girl Choir’s annual operating budget is approximately $350,000, with 60% of its revenue from tuition, 25% from fundraising, and 15% from ticket sales, performance fees, and other income.
