@RaiseHerVoiceOC

Raise Her Voice is Oakville’s premier choir for girls of all ages. We work to create a space where young female leaders feel confident raising their voices in song and in the world. With four different choral programs, every girl who wants to sing is provided with the opportunity to find her own voice. We use singing as a vehicle through which to consider a wide range of social justice issues that impact our lives. We can change the world through singing and we choose to do so as open, fierce, joyful, and empowered young women.
