The Texas Girls’ Choir was founded in 1962 by Shirley Thompson Carter, who had a dream of starting a choir with the belief that excellence of music could develop children’s lives. Since the beginning, we have worked to provide a place where little girls can be just that – a little girl. In today’s society, a young girl can struggle with many issues and pressures of everyday life. Here at the Texas Girls’ Choir, we strive to provide girls with a safe haven, somewhere they can be themselves while developing into strong, confident, motivated, and independent women. We have visited over 55 countries and 6 continents, bringing joy and love to all through music. The Texas Girls’ Choir continues to empower girls through exceptional music, etiquette, leadership and social programs. We believe in developing future female world leaders that will leave their mark on the world.
