How to Join

We’re so glad that you’re interested in our programs. The Girl Choir of South Florida offers exceptional choral music training for girls, ages 6 to 18 years old. No experience is required, but a love of singing and enthusiasm for music is essential.

** COVID-19 AUDITION UPDATE **

Due to the restrictions on public gatherings and social distancing measures, the Girl Choir of South Florida is temporarily waiving auditions for new singers until further notice. New singers will be automatically placed into the entry-level division based on their current age. Once social distancing rules have been lifted, students may be asked to complete a ‘new singer assessment’, in addition to classroom observations, to ensure the best placement within our levels.

If your child is interested in joining the Girl Choir of South Florida 2020-21 season (August 2020 to May 2021) please complete and submit the form below.

Audition information – Auditions are temporarily waived until further notice.

The Girl Choir of South Florida hosts open auditions for new members in August, December, January, and May.

All girls ages 6 through 13 are welcome to audition. Once admitted, girls can progress in Girl Choir through Senior Year in High School.

No prior musical experience is necessary. You do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. Girls will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, vocal maturity and readiness.

No appointment is necessary for our Voicing Placement Auditions. The audition process will take approximately 30 minutes, including an overview presentation of the Girl Choir.

Auditions (and rehearsals) are at the Girl Choir office located at 3347 NW 55th St in Fort Lauderdale. We are conveniently located off Commercial Blvd, between I95 and the Turnpike, near the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.

covid-19 message from the artistic director

March 30, 2020 —

Dear Girl Choir choristers, families, and staff,

Although we have been physically apart for the past two weeks, you all have remained in my daily thoughts and prayers. I have to tell you, being able to correspond with our choristers via our Google Classroom on rehearsal nights has delivered such sweet respite in these uncertain times.

I wanted to reach out to you today to give you some updates about our plans and share some of my thoughts during this Covid-19 health crisis:

  1. Our community is still as vibrant as ever. Wow! It’s amazing to see what is possible with the current available technology, and we look forward to hearing from you. Thanks to everyone who has sent in pictures and video already. Please keep it coming. We love to hear you SING!
  2. Poetry & Prose, the spring concert, will now be virtual. Our in-person rehearsals and concerts are cancelled through mid-May due to the Florida governor’s latest guidelines as of today to practice social distancing in South Florida. Instead, we are working together using both Google Classroom and Zoom to put together virtual GCSF performances. Here’s a lovely example from the Seattle Girls Choir: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSguUciSFf0
  3. Tour decisions are being made. Our Mezzo Choir trip to Disney this April has been canceled. Our Concert/Chamber tour to Oregon this July is still on the schedule, but could be canceled. A final decision will be made by the end of April.
  4. We will keep making music together. Our artistic staff and I are committed to the continued music education of our choristers and to continuing the joys of creating beauty in the world. We are excited to see how the Poetry & Prose (virtual edition) will be, and we absolutely cannot  wait until we can be together in person again.

I feel so lucky to be a part of this incredible community of smart, sensible, and social people. Thank you as always for your love and support of the arts.

Best wishes,
Ms. Aycock
