About PGC

Pittsburgh Girls Choir: Where girls find their voice and community.

Welcome to our website!  Check out the menus above (or the links below) for information about who we are, our programs, and how we became PGC.


The Pittsburgh Girls Choir welcomes girls of all races, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds into our supportive community committed to artistic excellence through an exemplary music education program.

My daughters are blessed to have this opportunity to engage in a group activity that requires them to give up their own ego, and as a result, be able to produce a sound that is beautiful, clear and unified.

Brenda Bakker Harger, Choir Parent


PGC seeks to share the transcendent beauty of girls’ voices  and strives to transform the lives of choristers by creating communities of compassion, excellence, mutual respect.

People in the Hall of Witness below said it was like hearing a choir of angels singing. Thank you for touching so many people today with your music.

What are the advantages of a Girls Choir?

  • Artistic, intellectual and emotional needs of girls are easier to meet
  • Environment is more relaxed
  • Safe and supportive community is more easily facilitated
  • Leadership opportunities increase

My daughter has benefited more than words can say from this organization. Her leadership has blossomed because of the encouragement and gentle instruction of Kathryn Barnard and the other adults involved in the choir. She did not come to the choir 6 years ago with the same abilities to lead (and sing!) that she now carries with her as she graduates and moves on.
