OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION: TO PROVIDE YOUNG WOMEN WITH AN EXEMPLARY CHORAL MUSIC EDUCATION THAT WILL FOSTER ARTISTRY, LEADERSHIP, AND COMMUNITY IN A CREATIVE AND SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT.

iSing is an arts organization committed to the music education of girls in grades 1–12.  We believe that singing teaches young people to strive for excellence, to work collaboratively with others, and to become passionate members of their communities.  iSing is "just for girls" because we want to encourage girls to develop their potential as leaders, creators, and performers through music.  Singing is empowering.
