Founded in 1994, the award-winning Peninsula Girls Chorus serves girls ages 6-18 from across the SF Bay Area. We represent over 90 area schools and 20 Bay Area cities. Our program offers:
"Transcendent. I love everything about it. The earnestness and sincerity of the effort. The compassion of the leaders and their care for the girls, not just the performance. It's a beautiful project. The epitome of community.”
“The PGC has provided the absolute best education for our girls. It is truly one of the best chorus groups on the Peninsula. The musicianship education makes our commitment to this group an easy addendum to our girls’ overall education.”
"Our daughter has been in PGC for 6 years and loves it. She was always a girl who loved to sing, but she has become a singer thanks to PGC. . . Confidence born of accomplishment is a gift you can give your girl by signing her up for PGC!”
"The vocal and musical education I received with PGC is unparalleled. PGC offers a musical, social and educational experience unlike any other and girls of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from its programs.”
"PGC is amazing! I have sung so many different styles of music in all sorts of different languages over my many years in PGC, from pieces in Hawaiian and Hindi to Mozart. I always loved to sing, but PGC has fostered that joy and taught me great technique and musicianship at the same time. PGC is a great community and a wonderful place to grow.”
"PGC is what continues to help me through the week. It helps me take my mind off of things that are stressing me out like homework or high school applications. Singing with PGC makes me feel happy”.
Girls who wish to participate in PGC must complete an audition appointment with our Artistic Director, Karyn Silva. We understand that for many singers this is their first experience at auditioning. We seek to make the process enjoyable and educational. We are looking for girls who have a clear love of singing, innate musicality and ability to focus on and respond to instruction. For more information, please visit our audition page and download our audition information packet.
Peninsula Girls Chorus is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
