While the boys and girls of the choirs spend a great deal of their time in musical pursuits, they have fun too. Every summer each choir goes to camp at Incarnation Center in Ivoryton, Connecticut. This is a wonderful opportunity for the choristers to get to know each other better and to help young novice singers feel included. Music, swimming and water sports, games, stories, camp fires, and a picnic when their families come to pick them up at the end of the week. There are also trips to other cities (even Washington, DC, to sing at the White House), participation in events with other choirs, and trips abroad to sing in European cathedrals and other venues.
The choirs have made several recordings over the years and much of their music is now on YouTube. Christmas music, secular music, traditional church music, gospel music, all kinds. Learn about the life of the choristers as they work and play. Listen, watch, and enjoy!
Take a few minutes to watch this video, which describes the life of both the Boys and Girls choirs. You’ll be glad you did!
