Let Us All Make Music

 

The first ever collaboration between the Olympic Girls’ Choir and the Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra  was a smashing success, with singers and musicians collaborating in the premiere performance of the commissioned work, Let Us All Make Music. We hope to join forces again in the future!

 

The Olympic Girls’ Choir: sharing a passion for singing

Olympic Girls' Choir

In September 2017 the Olympic Girls’ Choir entered its fourth year under the baton of Artistic Director Laura Milleson. Serving girls ages 7 to 14 residing on Bainbridge Island and in the Kitsap area, the girls’ choir 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.

The choir is comprised of two ensembles, Encora (non-auditioned, Meet-the-Director appointment required), for girls in Grades 2 – 4, and Cantabile (auditioned) for girls in Grades 5 – 8.

Auditions and Meet-the-Director appointments for the Spring 2018 are now closed. Please check the website in August for information about auditioning for the 2018-2019 season.
