Chorus School, Level IV

San Francisco Girls Chorus
San Francisco Girls Chorus Chorus School, Level IV

Founded in 1978, the San Francisco Girls Chorus has become a regional center for choral music education and performance for girls and young women ages 5-18. 400 singers from 45 Bay Area cities participate in this internationally recognized program, deemed “a model in the country for training girls’ voices” by the California Arts Council.

Emphasis is placed on more complex and challenging music, in addition to more demanding expectations for the refinement of sight-singing skills. Comprehension and vocalizing of musical phrasing is more complex at this level. Vocal technique is expected to become more consistent, and greater agility and practice are necessary to hear and learn music in more foreign languages. There are high expectations for the development of chorister independence in work ethic and also in rehearsal techniques. An ambitious schedule of performances allows Level IV choristers to offer their music – thereby sharing their talents and musicianship -- to a variety of audiences throughout the greater Bay Area. Level IV includes preparation to audition for the professional-level and touring ensemble, Chorissima.
