Peninsula Girls Chorus

Our Mission: The mission of the Peninsula Girls Chorus is to engage the hearts and minds of girls from diverse backgrounds through a comprehensive experience in choral music.

Our Vision: Our vision is that girls will live life more deeply through their involvement and participation in choral music.

Our History: Founded in January 1994 by Cathy Doyle and continuing under Artistic Director Karyn Silva since 2011, the Peninsula Girls Chorus has evolved from an organization serving just 11 girls into a premiere arts education and performance organization. The Peninsula Girls Chorus strives toward a high level of musicianship paired with sensitive interpretations of music from a variety of genres. In our quest to become global citizens of the 21st century, the PGC performs both locally and abroad. We provide a valuable resource to our local community through assorted outreach performances and we participate in prestigious domestic and international music festivals. In addition to musical benefits, the PGC offers opportunities for the development of leadership skills, higher-order thinking, discipline and self-esteem.

GRAMMY Award-winning Ragazzi Boys Chorus, Silicon Valley, provides outstanding musical education and performance opportunities for boys and young men ages 5 to 18. The largest boys’ chorus in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ragazzi serves over 200 choristers in six tiered levels. Under the leadership of Artistic and Executive Director Kent Jue, Ragazzi shapes the lives of boys from diverse backgrounds, developing tenacious and confident young musicians who pursue choral arts of the highest caliber together.

 

Ragazzi is a prominent collaborator in the area, providing vocalists for such notable organizations as the San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Symphony, Opera San Jose, Symphony Silicon Valley, and the Stanford University Symphonic Chorus, among others. Recent collaborations include Benjamin Britten’s “War Requiem” with the San Francisco Symphony and Opera San Jose’s production of “Tosca”.

 

The group tours throughout the United States and internationally to widen chorus members’ cultural and musical horizons and deepen Ragazzi’s reputation for performance excellence. The chorus has concertized in historic venues including Carnegie Hall in New York City, St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, and MuTH Concert Hall in Vienna. Ragazzi will make its Sydney Opera House debut in July 2024.
