SCG Spotlight: Meet Nurretta!

IMG_0471Meet our Choir Assistants!

Choir Assistants are members of Sister Cities for at least 2 years and in High School. These girls are showing up as leaders both in choir and in their communities and making a difference!


Meet Nurretta!


My name is Nurretta Bailey. I am 18 years old and I am in the 12th grade. I’ve been in choir for about 7 years. My favorite choir song is Shosholoza, a song we don’t sing anymore. My favorite choir memory would have to be performing at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Being a Sister Cities girl has impacted me in a lot of ways– but I believe what stands out the most is that I became more confident in myself. The teachers and the other girls in Sister Cities create such an inviting atmosphere where you are welcome to try new things without feeling judged.
