Fueled by the power of a girl’s voice, Princeton Girlchoir presents extraordinary performances at home and throughout the world, while educating the musician, building confidence, and fostering a life-long love of singing together.
Founded in 1989 as an after-school activity for girls interested in choral singing, Princeton Girlchoir has grown into the area’s premier training and performance choir for girls, with over 300 choristers participating during 2017-2018 season. Last season also marked the creation of the organization’s newest program, Princeton Boychoir, which premiered with more than 50 boys in its inaugural season. Combined, the organization now has 10 choirs, ranging from beginning to advanced levels, comprising girls and boys in grades 3-12. These choirs present music from a wide range of genres, styles, cultures and composers. While honing their musicianship and artistry, girls build lifelong friendships, enjoy professional performance opportunities, and travel the world.
Founding Director Jan Westrick’s vision to create excellent choral experiences for young artists has led to this recent expansion. These choirs, along with future music programs for existing singers and the broader community, will be housed under our new parent organization, Westrick Music Academy.
