A full season of live concerts and tours are ahead for Princeton Girlchoir and Princeton Boychoir of Westrick Music Academy for the 2022-23 season.

Young singers in grades 3 through 12 throughout central New Jersey and Bucks County, Pa., have been hard at work, coming together and rehearsing each week, according to a press release through Westrick Music Academy.

This comes after two years of theaters and concert halls around the world being shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic. And members of the choirs are “ecstatic” to bring the “gift of song” to local, national and international communities, according to the press release.
