Opportunities include the HG Youth Choir for teens in grades 9-12. The CHILDREN'S CONCERT CHOIR features singers from grades 5-8. The CHOIR TOO is the training choir for children in grades 2-4 or those who are still working on their singing voice. Enrollment is open to all children and typically includes students from all three school districts, private and home-schooled children.
Each choir meets once a week and typically performs an autumn concert, a holiday concert in December, and a spring concert. The choirs also perform for local civic and church groups, and join with other choirs for joint concerts. Touring began early in the HG Choir history and since then the choirs have toured in Washington D.C., New York City, Toronto, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and in every county in Pennsylvania, often joining with other community and school choirs. The choirs also toured Prague in the Czech Republic, and Brazil.
The tuition cost for participation is kept to a minimum. Scholarships are available to families thanks to the Katherine Brennan Scholarship Fund.
