Choral Camps 2020

We are offering FOUR virtual summer camps! Please see the appropriate age groups below.

Dates: June 23 – July 29 *Please see specific grade level days and times below.

Tuition: In response to the hardship that COVID-19 has had on our community and through the generous support of the PGC board, we are pleased to announce that there will be NO tuition to participate in the 2020 Choral Camps.  However, to help offset the cost of programming, we are requesting a $25 registration fee per singer and ask, should you be able, to consider making a larger tax deductible donation to help cover costs during this uncertain time.

Deadline to Register: June 15, 2020. No spots guaranteed after this date.
