Don’t miss out on one of the most beloved events of the season: September 21-22!

We are so excited to once again be traveling to Camp Jewell in Colebrook, CT for another fantastic weekend retreat! Each year, this trip is a favorite amongst choristers. It serves as a great bonding experience, as children form lasting friendships with choristers across all YPC divisions, ages 8-18. Participants will enjoy a fun-filled weekend of music making and outdoor activities such as field games, canoeing and hiking. We will rehearse music to be performed later in the season and work on developing music literacy and theory skills.

Space is limited, so please submit your application by Friday, September 13th.
