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; 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. Please note that while no actual audition is required, girls under age 7 require director's special permission.
Angeli means “angel.”
Our novice-level Amabile singers focus on musical development, skill level, and perfecting the singer’s understanding of music theory and sight singing. No actual choir experience is necessary, but we are looking for singers who are excited to learn and grow. Amabile is generally late elementary to junior high age.
Amabile means “sweet.”
Anima is for intermediate singers who have achieved an certain level of vocal performance, music theory, and sight singing. No actual choir experience is necessary, but we are looking for the serious and talented singer who wishes to continue learning all she can about the art of singing and polished performance. Anima singers are generally junior high age, but may include some advanced upper elementary singers or beginning high school singers.
Anima means "life."
Our Aria singers generally have a background in choral singing or private vocal instruction and have generally achieved an advanced level of vocal performance. Experience in sight singing and understanding of music theory is very helpful. Aria is for high school and exceptionally advanced junior high singers.
