Summer Music Program 2016

The American Boychoir Experience

Dates: June 25 - July 1, 2017

For boys 8-12 only. Experience one week in the life of an American Boychoir student. Enjoy lots of singing, making friends, and fun outdoor games.


Students learn and perform music in a fun and engaging way. Teachers include American Boychoir renowned Artistic Director, Fernando Malvar-Ruiz; Director of Vocal Studies, Fred Meads; and our Apprentice Choir Director, Melissa Keylock.


The American Boychoir Experience is a week full of fun! When boys aren't in rehearsal, they are outside playing games and sports. It's a typical camp experience complete with full-campus 'capture-the-flag,' 'siege and sanctuary,' and other games that the boys love! We have fun all the way until lights-out.


The week-long session finishes with a public performance, followed by a reception and fond farewells.
