Why Attend Adult Choir Camp

Join adult singers from across the United States and around the world to experience the joy of choral singing in a challenging, supportive, and friendly environment.

What You'll Learn

Under the direction of award-winning conductor Dr. Jerry Blackstone, participants will enjoy an immersive opportunity singing with fellow participants in a full vocal ensemble.

Experience daily vocal warm-ups, sectional rehearsals led by talented faculty section leaders, enriching afternoon discussions, and the fellowship of colleagues and faculty as a part of evening social activities.

The program culminates with a final public performance on the last day. Repertoire for the 2023 Adult Choir Camp will be available in December. 

Enrolled students will receive your music approximately one month before the program begins. In order to fully participate in this experience, enrollees must be able to read music and have experience performing in a vocal ensemble.
