PGC’s week-long summer choral camp and festival, Without Borders, is designed for girls entering 1st – 8th grade. Both experienced choristers and new choristers are welcome.

We are thrilled to announce that our guest conductor will be Tom Shelton, world renown music educator, conductor and composer. Mr. Shelton is an associate professor of sacred music at Westminster Choir College and national president of American Choral Directors Association.
At PGC, we are committed to creating choral communities of mutual respect and encouragement. Our choristers discover the richness of diversity. Without Borders will take this core value a step farther. Campers will be immersed in cultures from Canada, the US and Mexico, allowing them to grow in appreciation and respect towards cultures different than their own.
Cultural immersion will include the following folk elements:

• Multi-cultural choral repertoire
• Dances
• Stories
• Arts and Crafts
• Snacks

Campers will be placed in one of the following three groups based on musical and developmental needs:
• 1st – 3rd graders
• 3th – 6th graders
• 6th – 8th graders

Artistic Staff:
• Tom Shelton Guest Conductor
• Kathryn Barnard, Artistic Director, PGC
• Samantha Smith, Assistant Artistic Director, PGC
• Jane Boyle, Choral and General Music Educator Plum School District
• Abby Eagleson, Pianist, PGC

At PGC, we believe that learning should be a joyful adventure. Our goal is to meet the unique needs of each age group regarding healthy vocal production, basic musical literacy and ensemble singing. Musical games and percussion instruments are incorporated throughout the rehearsal to keep students fresh and excited about learning.
