Here are a few options in our state that our singers can investigate for the summer.
Dr. Page recommends the Royal School of Church Music Carolina Course in Raleigh, July
8-14, 2013. David Hill (of the London Bach Choir) will be the Music Director. The course
will include an Evensong in Duke Chapel, and the production of a professional documentary film about the Carolina Course. A pamphlet with more information will be emailed, by the vice presidents, to each of our families.
Another option is the NCSICA Camp June 23-28th at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC. Chorale attended this camp as their trip last summer some of our singers are planning to go again. Information can be found online.
CCGC will not be attending these as a group, but parents are welcome to enroll their singer(s) individually. These camps are not limited to high school age singers. Please review the documentation if you are interested.
