Girl Choir Auditions
Eligibility: students entering grades 3-12 who identify as female
“Girl Choir is a phenomenal program for budding vocalists to continue developing their abilities with other girls their age. It is a family that you never forget and that never forgets you.”
– Dawn Welling, Girl Choir alum (7 years)
In a typical year, the Lawrence Community Girl Choir program welcomes approximately 300 singers to the choirs. Auditions for the upcoming year are held in late spring. There is no cost to audition, but prior registration is required.
