Summer Music Camp

Summer Music Camp is only available to current SFGC choristers.

Recognizing the unique opportunities for personal growth that are inherent in a resident camp experience, the SFGC holds its camp for seven to ten days each summer. Choristers are involved in a vigorous musical and recreational program. The combination of a structured music program, recreational activities and a peaceful rural setting enables each singer to dedicate her attention to musical and social development. She will make rapid daily progress in mastering repertoire, music theory, and drama/dance techniques. An intensive period of music study gives a stronger sense of musical self-confidence. Through the camp experience, choristers get to know each other better and grow to appreciate their common bond of music. The camp experience is one of the most treasured memories of SFGC alumnae.

At camp, each chorister participates in the shaping of the newly formed Levels following June graduation, promotion, and auditions. Each Level is unique in its character, strengths, tone quality, and growth. Camp provides the opportunity to formulate the new ideals and tone quality that characterize each Level throughout the year. It is also essential for preparation of fall, Christmas, and spring repertoire.

Camp also provides the opportunity for Chorissima and Level IV choristers who may be participating in the fall San Francisco Opera and Symphony season to prepare the necessary repertoire.
