The San Diego Children’s Choir provides children with music education and performance opportunities that foster performance excellence and collaboration at the highest artistic level, nurturing individual development and creating a foundation for lifelong success.
The Girls Concert Choir, under the direction of Artistic Director Ruthie Millgard, is an advanced, auditioned treble ensemble with most members ranging in age from grade 6-9.
