Rehearsals and Tuition
Rehearsals are each Monday afternoon/evening between August and May. The Cantilena Choir (grades 2-5) meet from 5:15-6:15pm , Concert Choir (grades 6-12) meet from 5pm-6pm, and Grace Moore Singers (grades 9-12) stay until 7pm.
The Concert Choir (6th – 12th grades) also meets one Saturday morning a month.
CGC follows Hamilton County School schedule for Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks.
Each choir has multiple information community performances as well as our two formal concerts held in December and May each year.
“Concert Choir” comprises all singers from both Jubilate and the Grace Moore Singers and they perform at formal concerts and informal local events, as well as on the annual Tour.
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.

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.
