The Olympic Girls’ Choir: sharing a passion for singing

Olympic Girls' Choir

In September 2016 the Olympic Girls’ Choir entered its third year under the baton of Artistic Director Laura Milleson. Serving girls ages eight to fifteen residing on Bainbridge Island and in the Kitsap area, OGC provides a transformative experience through high-quality, diverse choral music education which emphasizes teamwork, encourages self-discipline, and fosters a deep commitment to artistic excellence. Along with music theory, sight reading, vocal technique and ensemble singing, the girls learn to be musicians in the context of a choir community. Repertoire is varied, ranging from traditional choral literature to current favorites, with each session culminating in a concert. As well, singers perform in the adult Chorale holiday concerts. This year, the Cantabile ensemble will join the adult Chorale and the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra in a collaborative performance of Sacred & Profane: Carmina Burana in April 2017.

The girls’ choir is comprised of two ensembles, Encora (non-auditioned, Meet-the-Director appointment required), for girls aged eight and up, and Cantabile (auditioned) for girls 10 and up.
This season we are delighted to welcome Patrick Dalrymple as accompanist for the ensembles. Patrick is also a new member of the Bainbridge Chorale and teaches choir classes at Woodward Middle School and Bainbridge High School.

Auditions and Meet-the-Director appointments for the 2017-2018 season will be held on in September 2017 in Classroom 1 at Rolling Bay Hall.
Please check this page in August 2017 for exact dates and times.
