Ragazze is a training choir for singers in grades 3-5 who identify as female. No audition required. Singers will learn the basics of healthy singing through the use of folk songs and singing games, and perform on both the fall and spring Girl Choir concerts in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel.

  • Suggested Reading Lists
    • To help girls better understand and connect with our concert theme of "We Raise Our Voices," we have posted two suggested reading lists on our Spring Semester Resources page: a list from the Academy of Malala-related books and a list from the Appleton Public Library of books including broader themes such as speaking out, defying expectations, and powerful women.
    • These reading lists are purely optional and meant to supplement the girls' learning.
