PGC parent

“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.”

PGC parent

"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!”

PGC parent

PGC alumna

"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 singer

"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”.
