Summer Away Camp for sFGC Choristers

When: Sunday, August 4 - Saturday, August 10, 2019
Where: Rio Lindo Adventist Academy in Healdsburg, CA
Who: SFGC Choristers in Levels II, III, IV, and the Premier Ensemble

Summer Away Camp is only available to currently-enrolled SFGC choristers. Summer Music Camp is mandatory for Levels III, IV, and the Premier Ensemble and is strongly encouraged for Level II.

Recognizing the unique opportunities for personal growth that are inherent in a residential camp experience, SFGC holds its camp for seven 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. Generations of alumnae share that the away camp experience is one of the most treasured memories of participation in the Chorus.

At camp, each chorister participates in the shaping of the newly formed Levels following June graduation, promotions, 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, holiday, and spring repertoire.

Camp also provides the opportunity for choristers who may be participating in the fall San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Symphony seasons to prepare repertoire.
