The Girl Choir Program of the Lawrence Academy of Music seeks to provide quality choral opportunities for girls in the Fox Valley region. Through the study and performance of the highest quality music, the girls develop vocal technique, music reading skills, creativity, expressive artistry, and an awareness of various cultures. The Girl Choir Program strives to create an atmosphere that encourages girls to respect the uniqueness of others, to take risks that foster individual growth, and to continue their development into self-assured young women. Currently there are over 200 girls singing in the Girl Choir program. They represent over 50 schools from throughout Northeastern Wisconsin.
