"I am so thankful to everyone in the choir and to the directors for helping me to grow not only as a musician, but as a person as well."
--Paige Russell, choir member for 7 years
"I have learned much more than I could ever comprehend or begin to express my gratitude for. I have met so many wonderful friends that I know will be with me for the rest of my life and I am so appreciative for those bonds I have created within other sections of the choir as well as my own. I was also fortunate enough to broaden my appreciation for music when I changed voice parts my freshman year of high school from a soprano one to an alto. This has allowed me to challenge myself and became able to partake in the State Solo and Ensemble Festival for solos throughout my school career in choir. I will be forever grateful for my experience with the Girl Choir! --anon. member, 6 years
"Joining and staying in this choir is one of the best decisions I have ever made. This organization has provided me with much more than a musical and creative outlet, it has provided me with memories I will never forget, along with friendships that will last a lifetime, and has taught me so much more than how to read music.
Throughout my eleven years in the GBGC there have been many great travel opportunities. Some of the most memorable places I’ve been with the choir include Germany and Austria, and we will be traveling to Estonia and Finland this June. Although these destinations are great, this choir has shown me that the people you travel with are really what make or break a trip. Through the choir I have met some of the most kind hearted, caring, and considerate people I have ever come across. The GBGC has provided me with some of my closest friends who I most likely would have never met otherwise, and I am beyond grateful for that. When you put together these amazing travel opportunities and such strong friendships, you get countless unforgettable moments."
Music has played a huge role in making me who I am today. I will never be able to truly explain everything this choir has given me...the Green Bay Girl Choir has changed my life, in ways that are beyond my understanding. Everyone deserves to have what this choir was provided me with. A place where they can be accepted and included, a place where they can share their passion with others, a place where love is spread and encouraged. A home away from home. For me, for the past eleven years, that place has been wherever the Green Bay Girl Choir took me." --Hannah VanBoxel, 18 yrs. old
"Why did I join Boy Choir? Honestly, I hadn’t really given joining a non-school choir very much thought until my middle school choir teacher suggested I look into the “Green Bay Boy Choir.” Even after she told me to audition, I still was pretty apprehensive, but I figured I should at least give it a shot. Wow, am I glad that I gave it a shot.
I’ve been a part of the choir since my freshman year, which is roughly four years now. Singing with a group of very talented guys has definitely improved my singing greatly, and even helped me come out of my shell. At school, I never really did many extracurriculars. With my newfound confidence from Joliet, I tried out for the summer musical and loved it. I’ve been doing theatre ever since which has changed my high school career for the better. Joining GBBCGC has truly changed my life. If I were to change one thing, I would have joined it much sooner than I did." --A.G.
