Your music is a beautifully prepared, engaging program full of variety and contrast, and the girls’ singing is full of energy, impeccable tuning, and both vibrant and effortless sounding at the same time. Your work with them is amazing. Everyone loved the program. Thanks again and congratulations on such excellent work!

I really appreciate the time and effort that I know went into preparing my song “Carmel Highlands” for the wonderful performance that I heard online. You have an impressive program down there and I am honored to have had my music included this past year.

What a lovely tone your women produce. Thank you so much for breathing such wonderful life into my music! Please be sure to let your singers know of my appreciation of their amazing performance.

I was snooping on You Tube and stumbled on this darling video of your choir singing!! I saved it to my “favorites” folder! Your girls are precious and sang so well! Way to go!

Re: your recording of my song “Winter Solstice”: I love the singing, the fact that the singers are allowed to move their bodies, the greatly sensitive pianist – EVERYTHING! Thank you so much!

Paul Carey, Composer

I tripped over your performance of my music on YouTube today and was blown away. Thanks very much for that.

The Girl Choir of South Florida, directed by Wallis Peterson, presented their spring concert yesterday afternoon in Ft. Lauderdale and it was one of the most enjoyable concerts I’ve heard in a long while. The Girl Choir staff is always mindful of the total audience experience. I admired the spirit of the singers, the dedication of the artistic and support staff, and their many proud volunteers and parents and was happy to have been a part of this happy celebration. They have many outstanding years ahead of them!

I really can’t thank you enough for what you did for our chorus. My students felt so valued and appreciated, and it gave them a great sense of accomplishment to be able to work together with your wonderful students. My students were inspired by the work that you are doing, and had a great appreciation for the care and values you are instilling in your lovely young singers. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

What a pleasure it was to work with your singers yesterday. I was really impressed with their professionalism, attentiveness, and dedication — these are not qualities which arise by accident, so kudos to you! You have clearly, in a relatively short time, established an atmosphere of confidence and trust — and most importantly, the determination to always strive for finer details and greater beauty. Bravo!

It was really nice to get to hear The Girl Choir of South Florida on Saturday. I thought you and they were terrific! Please pass on my congratulations to them. I hope to get to hear the choir again in the near future.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job your girls did in our worship service. I have heard nothing but raves about the singing, how well behaved and fun the girls are, and what a joy it was to have you all participating in our worship service.

Barbara Baird, Director of Music Ministries
First Congregational Church, Eugene, Oregon

This is just a small note of thanks to you and those lovely girls for a great performance yesterday. I heard nothing but positive feedback that our guests enjoyed the choir tremendously. The choir was professional and adorable–and their voices are absolutely divine. We would be honored to have you back next year! Thank you, so very much.

Melissa Chediak Wetzel, Director of Development

I am so grateful and proud that girl singers of South Florida now have the opportunity through your graded program to avail themselves of an excellent, sequenced musical education. Because there is such a void in public school music education, most parents and students cannot even fathom that such beauty of choral sound could exist. You and your program provide a glimmer of hope.
