Children/Youth Camp

Children/Youth Camp is a great opportunity for children and youth ages 8-15 to sing and learn with others. They will sing in choir under an experienced director who will make it both educational and fun. Classes will help children read and understand music as they learned to read and understand words.

Learning

In choir students see the music, notes, rests, and rhythms. In class they learn what those things mean and how they work together to form a song. The class teachers work hard to customize material for each age level so it’s accessible and exciting.

Sharing

Camp is also a social experience. Lunches are provided, and everyone gets to eat together. Lunch time also includes recreation and games – a welcome break from the mental work of classes and choir.

Singing

All the learning and singing during the week is pushing toward an end goal – performing at ChoralFest, getting to share what they’ve been learning with family and other audience members. This is a highly satisfying chance to show what they did throughout the week.

Children/Youth Camp is happening!

Meet the 3 C’s of your learning experience:

Choir. Class. ChoralFest.

Choir

Children’s Choir (Ages 8-11)
Meets twice daily, Monday-Friday. This choir is for treble voices only. (Male singers in this age range with changed voices may be promoted to the Youth Choir.) Students enrolled in choir also participate in Dress Rehearsal and ChoralFest.

Conductor: Gwendolyn Good

Youth Choir (Ages 12-15)
Meets twice daily, Monday-Friday. Students enrolled in choir are expected to participate in the ChoralFest, including Dress Rehearsal on Saturday evening.

Conductor: Dwilyn Beiler

Class

When we first start school, we learn about letters, how letters form words, and how words form sentences. In musical skills class, we do the same thing – only with music. Students will learn about notes, rhythms, rest, pitches, and how they all fit together to form a song. Learning how music works will strengthen their choir experience as they get skills to help them read unfamiliar music.

Class placement is by age, and is designed to be within reach of all, and yet challenging to those who are more advanced.

Musical Skills I (ages 8-10)
Musical Skills II (ages 11-12)
