How to Join the TGC

The Tucson Girls Chorus is enrolling new members through September 15, 2019

Contact us if you would like more information or set up an audition


Girls who are in Kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to enroll for placement into one of our five River Road choirs. Girls are generally placed into the choir that matches their age group and musical ability

Potential new members are welcome to attend one rehearsal to see if it is something they like to pursue!

Tuition Scholarships are available for all choirs!
Please contact the office to request a scholarship application.
The Tucson Girls Chorus never turns away a singer because of financial needs. 




OPEN HOUSE: What is it?

A parent/guardian must attend the Open House with the girl to review enrollment information. If families are unable to attend the Open House, we encourage to set up an appointment to meet with the Director to go over the enrollment process. Call the office or contact us.


The Placement Process:

Placement is administered by the TGC Director and is about 10 minutes in length and consists of:

  • The girl sings a song of her own choosing a cappella (without musical accompaniment). 
  • The director will evaluate pitch matching, vocal range, rhythmic ability and melodic memory through some simple vocal exercises.
  • No previous music experience is required
  • We only ask that girls have the ability of matching pitch and have a passion for singing, learning, having fun, attend weekly rehearsals and meeting new friends!
Girls entering into second grade and up need to audition. Girls entering into the entry level Bumblebee program do not have to go through the placement process but must complete an enrollment application. 


What is Due Upon Joining:

  • The enrollment fee of $15.00 is waived for girls that attend the Open House and join. 
  • If there are two girls in the same family that join, the TGC offers a sibling discount on their tuition (the older girls pays full tuition and the younger sibling pays half tuition). 
  • Upon joining, the quarter tuition (varies by choir) and polo shirt fee ($20.00) is due. 
  • Families are welcome to apply for a tuition scholarship and will pay one month's tuition along with the polo shirt fee.
