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 number of summer 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.
Currently, during school year 2021-22, Saint Paul's Choir School has the following precautions in place. We expect them to continue into the Summer of 2022, with the addition that classes will be held outdoors when possible.
Daily Google Form symptom screener prior to entry (sent to your email)
Weekly pool testing
On-site rapid tests for "test and stay" protocol if a person exhibits Covid symptoms
face coverings optional
Please remain hopeful and optimistic with us! As one of our alumni, Tim McGuirk ('07) so eloquently stated: "You [choir boys] are one of the best signs of hope in the world."
