The Mississippi Girlchoir offers three choirs for girls, 3rd through 12th grade.
Bel Canto — Touring/Professional Choir
Bel Canto is for choristers who have experience in singing with a choir through their church, school, or community. Rising 8th thru 12th grade girls are invited to audition for this choir.
Bella Voce — Intermediate Choir
For choristers grades 3rd through 8th.
Placement auditions are required for rising 7th-12th grade girls. Girls should prepare one song for auditions, for instance a favorite hymn or song.
Auditions for rising 8th through 12th graders begin in June for the upcoming season.
Rising 3rd – 7th grade girls do not require an audition, and will generally be placed in the intermediate choir.*
*Placement also depends on the number and grade level of girls registered for the season.
