Arizona Girlchoir is a nonprofit community choir for girls and women, ages 7 and up. Our mission is to serve our community through excellence in the choral arts and high quality music education provided across generational, cultural, and economic boundaries.
We have five choir ensemble levels, from beginning to advanced. Placement in a an ensemble is based on age and ability and is at the discretion of the artistic staff.
Angeli is our entry-level choir, beginning at age 7 (6 with director's permission); no experience is necessary. This beginning level is generally a singer’s introduction to choir, music theory, and sight singing. Angeli focuses on teaching appropriate techniques that will be developed and perfected as girls proceed to each ensemble.

Anima is for skilled singers who have achieved an excelling level of vocal performance, music theory, and sight singing.
