MUSICA DE FILIA (Music of the Daughters) is a unique, all female choir, founded in 1997 and directed by Jaye Churchill.
The goal of Musica de Filia is to provide superb choral performance training and performance opportunities for girls and women. We provide a warm and friendly environment emphasizing poise, self-discipline, and musical excellence.
The Apprentice Choir is for girls in grades 2-6. Singers in grades 7-12 can be part of our Concert Choir. The Chamber Choir is comprised of singers with extensive musical experience in grades 9-12. The Women's Choir is for all women, 18 and up.
Girls and Women learn and perform a wide variety of choral music styles, including classical, Broadway, holiday, sacred, Gospel, traditional and contemporary American and foreign language choral music.
Membership is by audition. Our 200+ members hail from 29 Southern and Central Maine communities. Following a successful audition, girl singers are placed into one of our four girl choirs and women are placed in the Women's Choir.
All rehearsals take place at our studio, 550 Forest Avenue, Portland, Maine. We rehearse September through May.
