The Prep Choir
The Prep Choir is generally comprised of girls in K - 3rd grades. Choir members learn music fundamentals such as rhythm, pitch, and vocal expression. Active participation is based on the theory of "rote before note - sound before sight." The girls develop music thinking skills and improve in their level of musicianship as they sing a variety of music in a fun, encouraging atmosphere.
The Main Choir
The Main Choir is primarily comprised of girls in 4th grade and up. The Main Choir builds upon the fundamentals taught in the Prep Choir and utilizes a diverse repertoire of music including classical, contemporary, gospel, folk, patriotic, seasonal, and foreign songs to build understanding, experience, and confidence. Choir members learn the discipline of blending voices and singing parts using printed music and the ear.

AGC's primary source of income is from tuition. Tuition per semester is $250 with a 20% discount per child for multiple children in the same family. Also, if you refer a friend to AGC and they stay the semester, you will receive a $50 credit towards the following semester’s tuition. At this time we can only accept checks or cash.
AGC has two costumes, formal and informal. For formal concerts, AGC members wear the Sierra classic black concert dress by Stage Accents and black dress shoes. For informal concerts, AGC members wear a red polo shirt with the AGC logo by Quality Screenprints, jeans and tennis shoes. The AGC costume coordinator orders the dresses and shirts to ensure uniformity and reduce shipping costs. A performance dress code will be provided to parents.
One time costume costs are required for formal dresses ($70), T-shirts ($10), two bows and pearls ($15). Some gently used items may be available at reduced cost, depending upon size needed.
To help keep expenses low, AGC conducts various fundraising activities. Proceeds from fundraisers go towards operating expenses of the choir. AGC also welcomes sponsorships, grants and donations.
