About San Francisco Girls Chorus
Founded in 1978, the San Francisco Girls Chorus is a leading voice in music in the Bay Area and across the nation. Led by Artistic Director Lisa Bielawa and Music Director and Principal Conductor Valérie Sainte-Agathe, the Girls Chorus produces and collaborates in concerts, recordings and tours that empower young women, expand the field of music for treble voice, and set the standard for the highest level of performance and education. Hundreds of singers ages 5-18 from over 45 Bay Area cities participate in this program, which has won honors including 3 ASCAP awards for Adventurous Programming and five Grammy awards.
The Chorus School offers a program of unparalleled excellence, designed to take young girls from their first introduction to the art of choral singing through advanced choral/vocal instruction. This comprehensive music education includes the study and development of choral artistry, vocal technique, music theory, music history, and performing style. The discipline, teamwork, and concentration young girls learn in the Chorus School rehearsals and performances instill in them the values necessary for high achievement in music and in life.
The Chorus School Level III is an ensemble of approximately 50 girls ages 8-13, which performs music for holiday events, festivals, dinners, luncheons, auctions, and other events.
