Girls’ 21 is an auditioned female choir from Cherry Creek High School, a public school near Denver, Colorado, recently recognised as a GRAMMY Signature School of Excellence. Girls’ 21 is comprised of 47 sophomore, junior and senior girls dedicated to finding the fun in being serious about excellence. The choir stresses not only the aesthetics of music, but also an understanding of music literacy, theory, and history through the performance of quality choral literature. Girls’ 21 tours annually, rotating between domestic and international destinations. Their proud history includes appearances at numerous state MENC/NAfME conventions, Southwest ACDA in 1992 and 2016, and National ACDA in 1989 and 1997. Directed by Adam Cave, the members are really looking forward to touring and performing in the West of Ireland.
