“I was so impressed with the BC Girls Choir education outreach program. Wow! The singing was magnificent! And I really enjoyed how the girls moved so confidently into their places. A truly amazing concert. Well done! I was so proud of my students and it was so thoughtful of you to acknowledge us music teachers! Thank you so much for such a wonderful afternoon!”
Elizabeth McFarlane, Music teacher in the North Vancouver School District, who has consistently nominated singers to our outreach programs.
SpringSing is an Education Outreach project for girls in grades 4 to 7
Every Spring we offer a short, intensive program which challenges and enhances the learning of singers who have been nominated by their school music teacher. This choral program takes place in Coquitlam, a location that is central to all locations of Metro Vancouver.
Singers take part in 4 rehearsals (a total of 6 hours of tuition) and then perform in concert with the BC Girls Choir. This year, the SpringSingers will be special guests at our We are the Voices: a Gala 15th Anniversary Celebration at the 650-seat Centennial Theatre! The girls learn up to four pieces, enhance their singing skills and sense of group accountability; they, in turn, encourage music students at their school.
We keep the fees very low at $60 – just enough to cover our costs.
