Description

The Bainbridge Chorale, founded in 1971, is an auditioned community choral performance company. Its mission is to enrich and inspire its singers, audience and the community by sharing the transcendent power of choral music.

The Chorale presents two December and two April concerts, plus a December Family concert. Beyond its regular performances, the Chorale reaches out to the community with the following endeavors, among others:

• The Olympic Girls' Choir, an auditioned choir for girls aged 8 - 15

• An annual Messiah Sing-Along in December, and Community Caroling in downtown Winslow.

• The annual summer "Bainbridge Sings! Classics to contemporary - works you love to sing". Anyone who loves to sing and wants to read through a selection of favorite works, is invited to join Chorale members for a series of three Monday evening sight-reading sessions under the direction of Chorale Music Director Michael Miller.

Description

The Olympic Girls’ Choir focuses on providing a comprehensive and progressive choral education within a girls’ choir community, with an emphasis on vocal production, ensemble performance, and music reading/theory. Repertoire includes a wide variety of classical, contemporary and popular music
The choir consists of three ensembles, Encora (unauditioned for ages 7-9), Cantabile (auditioned, for ages 10-12), and Chamber Choir (for girls 12 and older with choral experience). They present two concerts annually in December and April, and sometimes perform in the Bainbridge Chorale concerts as well.

The mission of the Olympic Girls’ Choir is to provide girls and young women a transformative experience through high-quality, diverse choral music education which emphasizes teamwork, encourages self-discipline, and fosters a deep commitment to artistic excellence.
The program is designed to instill a love of music, develop musicality, and encourage a life-long engagement with choral music.
