Choir School Summer Camps 2020

We welcome boys and girls, regardless of church affiliation, who are interested in singing beautiful and exciting music of the Christian faith in the striking cathedral setting, while growing as musicians and children of God. 

The Saint Mark's Choir School also operates year-round. Click here for more information about the Choir School program.

We have three camps available this year: Junior Chorister Camp (for children 5 years old – 2nd grade), Senior Chorister Camp (for children in 3rd – 8th grade), and High School Choral Camp (for high school singers and changed-voice boys).

Scholarships: We want your child to participate! Partial scholarships available to those who find full tuition a hardship at this time. Please indicate your interest in the registration form and our committee will send you an application form. Scholarship interest must be received two weeks prior to the start of camp to be considered.

Camp faculty include the Cathedral Choir School staff: Canon Michael Kleinschmidt, Choir School Director Rebekah Gilmore, and Music Administrator Madeleine Stephens.
