All Burlingame Peninsula Girls Chorus choirs meet from September to June on a weekly basis.
Tuition is $1300 per year for each chorus member with a $50 discount for those who pay via check. In addition to the tuition fee there is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $130 due upon joining. The PGC offers several tuition payment plans: tuition may be paid in ten monthly payments, in two semester payments or in one annual payment. The PGC offers a $50 discount for families paying annually, and a $25 per semester discount for those who wish to pay by the semester. When more than one child in the same family is in the chorus, tuition for the first child is $1300, and each additional sibling may pay a reduced tuition of $1250. The PGC Board of Directors offers generous tuition assistance for qualified applicants.
Volunteer Expectations: the PGC asks that parents use talents, ideas, and connections to further the mission of the PGC by devoting at least 5 hours per year to PGC volunteer activities. Volunteer opportunities include: staffing the desk and doors during weekly rehearsals, ushering, chaperoning, setting up and cleaning up for concerts and chaperoning girls during concerts and performances.
Fundraising Expectations: the PGC seeks to enroll all interested singers. By design, the annual tuition has a deficit of $800 per singer so that all girls may participate in our program regardless of family economics. Through foundation and corporate support, the PGC has traditionally been able to cover half that amount. As a community, the PGC families make up the remainder through our fundraisers and our Annual Contribution Campaign.
"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”.
