Calgary Girls Choir
Calgary Girls Choir was founded in 1995 by Elaine Quilichini and has flourished and grown under her direction and inspiration. Throughout its career, critics and adjudicators have acclaimed its performances. 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. CGC is known for gorgeous resonant tone, impeccable technique and for the artistry and sincerity of its performances.
The Choir has gained renown 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. 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.
The Calgary Girls Choir has produced 6 CDís and this Christmas will release a DVD of performances from their recent Italian tour. The Choir thrilled Italian audiences with their music and performed to standing room only crowds. CGC was honoured to sing mass at St. Markís Basilica in Venice and at the Vatican.
Recording, touring and the commissioning of new choral works are exciting and ambitious undertakings of the senior choirs. All of these activities enrich the experience of each girl involved and enrich the entire choral community. These projects help the Calgary Girls Choir to fulfill its mandate to serve as a model and inspiration for others. The Calgary Girls Choir offers a rich and varied opportunity for girls and young women to find music, mentorship, self confidence and personal growth through an exemplary program of music education and performance.
