About the Choir

Transforming girls’ lives through musical excellence.

The Girl Choir of South Florida is the premier singing ensemble for girls and young women ages 6 through 18. The Girl Choir, led by Artistic Director Wallis Peterson, has been extolled by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel as “imaginative, accessible, expressive, and entertaining”, gaining a reputation for delivering compelling concert programming. Rehearsals include vocal exercises and exploration, music theory and sight-singing instruction, and repertoire development.

The Girl Choir’s repertoire is broad, from ancient to modern, classical to popular, sacred to secular, and folk to Broadway, encompassing many cultures, faiths, and traditions. Since the choir was founded, the Girl Choir has commissioned and premiered works by noted choral composers, including Eleanor Daley, Bob Chilcott, and David Brunner. The Girl Choir presents concerts at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and as part of many concert series throughout South Florida.
