Singing Girls of Texas

Singing Girls of Texas is a professional-level young women’s choir program with three core ensembles and two community choirs.

Founded in 2001 as a sibling organization to the Grammy award-winning Texas Boys Choir, Singing Girls of Texas (SGT) is a premier treble choral program of Texas Center for Arts + Academics (TCA+A). Singers in SGT Training, SGT Chamber Choir, and SGT Tour Choir attend school and rehearse at the public charter school, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts (FWAFA). 

Once a singer is accepted into FWAFA, they can audition for SGT Training beginning in 7th grade. As singers grow in their musicianship and self-confidence, they may continue to move through the organization by participating in SGT Chamber Choir (7th through 12th grade) or audition for SGT Tour Choir beginning in 9th grade, both of which provide further opportunities to learn and perform. Chamber Choir is for students who wish to continue their choir training, but are also interested in other artistic disciplines while the Tour Choir is an advanced performance-based ensemble that gives high-quality concerts in regional, national, and international tours. 

SGT and respective members have received superior accolades from University Interscholastic League (UIL) Concert and Sight-Reading Contest and District and State Solo and Ensemble Contest, have performed at National and Regional American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) conferences, have received superior ratings at National Associate for Teachers of Singing (NATS) contests, have toured to New York, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, Utah, and Minnesota, were selected to present a student-led presentation at New Mexico Music Educators Association in January 2023 on “Connection”, and are traveling to participate in the Winter Park Ski Music Festival in Colorado in March 2023. 

Additionally, SGT has entered into its first year of a composer-in-residence program with Sarah Quartel. Over the next two years, Mrs. Quartel will be writing a masterwork for SGT to premier in 2024. In collaboration with Mrs. Quartel, SGT will also record a CD of her treble works and will sing on the showcase concert of the new Treble Choir Symposium, “Songbird Symposium”, in June 2023, where Mrs. Quartel and Dr. Lynn Brinckmeyer will clinic treble singers and provide mentorship opportunities for directors and students.

Your generous support allows us to provide these unique musical opportunities for students. We hope you will join us as a supporting member of Singing Girls of Texas.

SGT was a group where I always felt at home and comfortable expressing myself. Through SGT I learned how important sisterhood is and I will carry that with me for the rest of my life.
