National Girls Vocal Ensemble
"Empowering girls to find their voice"
The National Girls Vocal Ensemble is a community of encouragement for girls and young ladies in grades two through twelve from all ethnic and economic backgrounds pursuing extraordinary music education and opportunities for performing excellence. In addition to helping each singer realize her artistic potential, we cultivate healthy self-esteem, self-reliance, and leadership skills within a community of reverence and support. Our hope for every young lady is for her to develop a lifelong desire for the creative arts, community service, and bringing their own unique gift to the world.
The National Girls Vocal Ensemble learns and performs repertoire from musicals, as well as folk songs, American Art Songs, and age-appropriate and interesting selections from all genres of music.
The National Girls Vocal Ensemble has rolling auditions throughout the year, as well as scheduled auditions in the summer and January. Children ages 6 to 17 from DC, Maryland, and Virginia are encouraged to audition for the chorus. No preparation or experience is necessary, a simple session with the Music Director will take about 15 minutes.
To schedule an audition, please call 202-581-1043 Ext.0, or send an email to JacquelineBanks@NationalConservatoryOfArts.org. Potential singers need not prepare a song in advance, but if they do, it should be one that reflects their musicality.
