Ragazze singers singing during a concert, wearing red t-shirts with the Girl Choir graphic on the right breast and black pants

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

Students registered for Academy ensembles are also expected to participate in a curricular (during the school day, for credit) performing musical ensemble when available; Ragazze should not substitute for curricular music programs.
