Chorister 2018 – present

My experience here in the choir has always been good and fun. I have learned so many amazing songs like Let the River Run and Forget About the Boy. I also have learned some beautiful songs in different languages like Russian and Latin. It’s fun to branch out and find these variety of songs to sing because sticking to one section of songs is never great and you don’t get to learn what’s out there. This is what CGC or the Chattanooga Girls Choir has taught me.

I am so thankful for my time in the choir as it was an outlet to express my passion for music as well as a place to learn and grow as a singer. During rehearsals, concerts, and tours, I made many delightful memories and dear friends that changed my life for the better!

The students I receive at the Center for Creative Arts are musically advanced and serve as leaders in my ensembles. When new students audition for me I can tell girls choir members by their poise and level of preparation.

Opera Singer

Being a part of the Chattanooga Girls Choir was truly the foundation of a professional operatic career.  I know without that base and John Dyer’s leadership, I never would have had the success and opportunities that I was afforded.
