Elizabeth Chladil, Summer Program Music & Rhythm Teacher
Learning in a musical ensemble, whether it's a chorus or a group music/movement class is inherently joyful and social! Through music, students learn teamwork and problem solving while making new friends!
Heather Schmid, Parent & Recording Artist
That was a triumph! It was honestly a masterclass in how to run a summer program! From the stylized programs to the t shirts and alumni counselors- to the daily debriefs, the mantra, and photo montages.The program was just so well organized and impressive. The fact that the kids learned music and bonded in a structured program was a bonus.
A Note Regarding Coronavirus:
As many of us have experienced, the availability of after-school programs available to children this year is greatly diminished. We remain committed to running this program safely in person, as intended. Our Covid precautions will reflect the best guidance from the Governor, local officials, and school administration.
Saint Paul's Choir School currently has the following precautions in place. We expect them to continue further into 2021-22.
Daily Google Form symptom screener prior to entry (sent to your email)
Face coverings worn at all times
Weekly testing requirement
Please remain hopeful and optimistic with us! As one of our alumni, Tim McGuirk ('07) so eloquently stated: "You are one of the best signs of hope in the world."
