The Pennsylvania Girlchoir maintains a repertoire steeped in the classical tradition and enhanced by music from many cultures and time periods. Established in 2004, the choir was lauded as “a happy addition to the musical resources of the [Delaware Valley].”
In its ten years, the Pennsylvania Girlchoir has collaborated with many important Philadelphia arts and culture organizations, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Mendelssohn Club, Opera Company of Philadelphia, The Curtis Institute of Music, The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Lyric Fest, WHYY, University of Pennsylvania and Network for New Music.
In 2007 the Pennsylvania Girlchoir’s stellar performance in Mendelssohn’s oratorio Elijah with Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia led its music director, Alan Harler, to declare Pennsylvania Girlchoir “the finest Girlchoir I’ve ever worked with,” and music critic Michael Caruso said “the choir sang with impressive delicacy of tone, smoothness of balance and blend, and security of projection…”
The Pennsylvania Girlchoir is committed to providing superior choral music education and performance opportunities for young people from diverse economic, racial and ethnic backgrounds and to pursue artistic excellence that inspires performers and audiences alike.
