Since the summer of 1967, RSCM choir courses have enriched the lives of thousands of young singers and their choir directors, church, school, and community choirs across the United States and Canada. Our course has contributed to the summer offerings since 1996. Our motto, Psallam spiritu et mente, “I will sing with the spirit and with the understanding also,” underscores the many opportunities for musical mountaintop experiences to young and old alike.
Participants will enjoy daily small group rehearsals with their housemaster. The housemasters are acclaimed choral directors that are on staff to work with each group, or house, of girls or adults. Ear training and one on one coaching are also available for those interested.
The girls live together in the dorm and enjoy games, crafts, and social activities. Many participants come back year after year to reunite with their RSCM friends and even talk about other courses they have attended.
Each day winds down with a service of Evensong utilizing the music learned so far. Dinner, social time, and perhaps an organ concert follow.
