Quarantine Quire Camps 2021

 

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 two camps available this year: Senior Chorister Camp (for children in 3rd – 8th grade), and Schola Camp (for high school singers and changed-voice boys). Both camps will be conducted via Zoom this year, with the exception of the Senior Camp kickoff.
