Rehearsals and Tuition
The CGC Season mirrors the Hamilton County Department of Education school year in terms of start/end dates, holidays, and vacations. Rehearsals are generally each Monday afternoon/evening. The Concert Choir (5th – 12th grades) also meets one Saturday morning a month.
Check out the THIS SEASON page to see info on the major concerts. Every choir will also have several other performances each semester in a variety of venues.
“Concert Choir” comprises all singers from both Jubilate and the Grace Moore Singers and they perform at formal concerts as well as other events often as well as on the annual Tour. Concert Choir rehearses together one Saturday morning each month.
There are at least one or two pieces in every Fall or Spring concert that includes all of the choirs singing together. And always “Edelweiss” – the signature tune of the CGC – is sung by all the choirs, as well as any alumnae present in the audience, at the end of every concert.
Cost to Join
Each of the choirs has an annual tuition for membership. Tuition schedules for each choir can be found in the Choir Tuition section at the bottom of this page.
The Girls Choir has never turned away an applicant because of an inability to pay and regularly seeks outside scholarship funding to assist those in need. If your family needs tuition assistance please follow the application process and turn in the scholarship application at your audition. Download the Scholarship Application Form here.

I had trained seriously for years as a dancer and only came into the choir as a senior, so I was a little apprehensive about being accepted – and measuring up to – by the veteran girls. But everyone was so nice! There were fantastic altos around me at the time and it increased my musicianship exponentially right away. It was fun to be part of that wonderful sound!

I loved the way tour was such a uniting experience. Being away from home together for a long time created a real bond with the other girls. We got to sing in all of these different, amazing acoustical environments , and it was interesting to see how space could help define the sound the group made.
