Event Details

Girls entering grades 6-8 (Fall 2022) are invited to attend our upcoming audition days on Zoom!

We believe that every girl can learn to sing and do not reject anyone. The purpose of the audition is to help us place each girl in the choir which will enable her to thrive.

*Who is eligible to audition? Any girl entering grades 6-8 with a treble singing voice*

We ask that at least one parent is present for this meeting.  This provides an opportunity for both student and parent to get to know the teacher and to find out more about Pittsburgh Girls Choir.  Please visit our registration page to register for Via for the 2022/2023 season after the audition!  If you can’t make it on August 31 or September 1 please contact Kathryn Barnard, Artistic Director at kathryn@pghchoralarts.org for an appointment.
