One of the most artistically accomplished vocal ensembles in the country, the San Francisco Girls Chorus is a center for choral music education and performance for girls and young women aged five to eighteen. More than 600 students participate in its Preparatory Chorus, in-school programs, four-level Chorus School, and Chorissima, the organization’s concert, recording, and touring ensemble that performs with the San Francisco Symphony and San Francisco Opera. The organization would use this grant to increase enrollment in its core programs; continue to commission composers to add new work to the choral repertoire; and develop a new artistic leadership model beginning in 2013–14, its thirty-fifth season.
