By Claire Balcom I joined SGC with the least amount of dramatic flair possible. For what would turn out to be a staggeringly life-altering decision, it was one I made very casually, slipping quietly into the summer camp before my 8th grade year without so much as an audition (I sang with Mr. Gagiu at […]Read More

By Amelie Petit Most of the seniors who went to Wales with SGC write about it in their senior essay, and I am no different. We were running on 5 hours of sleep at best, I had eaten at least 3 power bars in the past 2 hours, and it was 90 degrees out. To […]Read More
By Ellie Rice I had thought that my senior essay would have to be my final goodbye before I graduate from this organization. After this, I officially wouldn’t get to experience the joys of being a chorister anymore. I’d be released into the world, only to return for a few Town Hall concerts or maybe […]Read More
By Sophia Hillstrom I have been in the Seattle Girls Choir for 9 years. I joined when I was in 4th grade when I started singing with Allegra. My most distinct early memory of SGC was listening to Prime Voci sing “There is Sweet Music” by Daniel E. Gawthrop. That was the moment I knew […]Read More
In Summer 2017 in Wales, at the Youth Folk category of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, 28 girls walked onstage. Re-watching this performance, the camera’s distance renders our faces deceptively neutral. In reality, we were excited but apprehensive, running on adrenaline and four hours of sleep. Countless hours of practice were about to pay off. Reaching the […]Read More
I am both grateful and slightly resentful that my parents never enrolled me in an organized activity as a child. Other kids had soccer portraits on the fridge, dance photos in frames, or piano trophies lining their walls. They had their thing, their talent, their descriptive adjective to put next to their name. These labels […]Read More
Singing is something almost everyone does. Children sing, performers sing at ballgames, people sing along with the radio in their car…it’s a universal human activity. Because it can seem so simple, people tend to underestimate the skill it takes. But singing is a skill I have pursued for many years, and it takes enormous effort […]Read More
There is absolutely no feeling in the world that can compare to the sensation that follows 28 American, teenaged choristers collectively skipping the second verse of Suite Judy Blue Eyes at a concert in Llangollen, Wales. We had just received less than ideal results in our second competition during the Eisteddfod International Choral Competition and, […]Read More
Needless to say I did not anticipate my SGC career ending prematurely on account of a viral pandemic but alas, life continues to prove itself unpredictable. Condensing my proudest accomplishments, innumerable rehearsals, and the greatest friendships I’ve ever had seems an impossible feat but these days I have nothing but time on my hands. When […]Read More
Every Spring the Seniors of Prime Voci are asked to write an essay about their SGC experience. In 2016 we had three young ladies graduate. Emily Music has always been an integral part of my being. From an early age, I sang in lieu of talking and I danced instead of walking. I forever thank my […]Read More
