About the Cambridge Girls' Choir
Commitment to Canadian Music:
The Cambridge Girls' Choir fosters an appreciation of choral music and is committed to promoting Canadian music and talent, through local concerts and touring destinations in Canada and abroad.
We are proud to have commissioned sixteen new works by Canadian composers since our formation in 1981.
Touring is an important musical and team building activity for the Choir.
Our group does a major trip every 2 years. Over the years, the Choir has been a musical ambassador while touring and performing in cities like New York, Ottawa, Montreal, Paris, and London.
In 2014, our Choir traveled to New York City and performed in some breath-taking locations. We also enjoyed a Broadway show and sightseeing around the city. In 2017 the Choir traveled to Toronto, and had a wonderful time sightseeing, performing in our beautiful hotel, as well as an impromptu performance at the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre!
The 2010/2020 season is not a tour year for us, but we will be starting to plan our next tour!
