Come and enjoy the artistry of stunning voices along with the majestic Carthy organ. CGC is known for their gorgeous resonant tone, impeccable technique and repertoire and for the artistry and sincerity of its performances.
Calgary Girls Choir was founded in 1995 by Elaine Quilichini and has flourished under her direction and inspiration. The Choir offers exceptional choral music education and performance opportunities for girls and young women ages four to twenty-four years.
The repertoire of the Choir ranges from folk song to contemporary classical music with the emphasis always on repertoire of the highest quality. The philosophy that only the best is good enough has been a constant guiding principle in every season.
Over the years, the choir has experienced tremendous growth and earned a stellar reputation in the choral community nationally and internationally. Tours have included Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Wales, England and Italy, in addition to touring extensively in the USA and Canada. Recently, the Choir thrilled Italian audiences and was honoured to sing mass at the Vatican and at St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice. The Choir has been featured in numerous radio and TV broadcasts and is a three time winner of the CBC National Radio Competition for Amateur choirs.
