REGISTER NOW! 2017 Choir Camp, August 7-11
The Cathedral Choristers’ Choir Camp (day camp) is a high-quality, safe, choral arts experience for returning and new choristers, boys and girls ages 9 (entering 4th grade) and up. Campers receive intensive musical instruction from the most Ancient bodies of music (Gregorian Chant) to modern. Daily, the instruction becomes a living body of prayer as the choristers sing Evening Prayer (Vespers) and prepare for future liturgies. Directed by Ms. Jayne Windnagel, the Director of the Cathedral Choir School, and assisted by Ms. Anna Peters (Schmidt) of St. Croix Catholic School, the Cathedral sacred music and arts staff will teach music theory, vocal pedagogy, and establish an esprit de corps with a high level of learning, spiritual formation, and musical satisfaction. Activities throughout the week include art and games.
NEW THIS YEAR! The camp will incorporate separate, in-depth training for girls ages 14+ (Italian method), and for boys with changed voices.
The cost of the day camp is $100 for parishioners, $125 for non-parishioners (application for partial scholarships available at registration) and includes snacks, lunch and a Choir School shirt. The “Camp of the Incarnation” runs from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday, August 7 through Friday, August 11, 2017. Campers are invited to return to the Cathedral to sing for the noon Mass on the Feast of the Assumption on Tuesday, August 15, 2017. To register children, please fill in and submit the form below.
