SCG sang for a standing-room only crowd today! After ten days of Girlchoir Camp, families, school staff, and community leaders gathered to see and hear the Girlchoir today. 100% of the girls in the Summer Camp have never sang in a choir before—and yet, after two weeks of hard work they presented a beautiful program of song.
The Girlchoir sang songs from around the world, even singing in 3 languages! They also wowed the crowd with energetic folk and line dances. The concert ended with the Cupid Shuffle and the family and community members in the audience joined the Girlchoir on stage to dance and celebrate as one!
SCG provides a world-class choral training program to empower girls to create a better world. According to the results from the American Camping Association survey, 92% of the Girlchoir campers reported that Camp improved their Friendship, Family Citizenship, Teamwork, and Independence skills.
Sister Cities Girlchoir launches a Pilot Year at Memphis Street Academy on September 10, 2012. Sixty girls have signed up for the program!
