Chant Camp – Aug 2022

Scott Turkington directs at Chant Camp.

Chant Camp is the inaugural event led by the Shrine’s new Director of Sacred Music, Scott Turkington. This year, this camp will be for high school youths only. (Next summer, the camp will likely broader the age range.) The dates and times for this event will be Monday, August 15 through Friday, August 19, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

This five-day course will teach high school youths to learn the basics of chant for beginners and professional techniques for seasoned singers. By the end of the week-long course, attendees will have a well-rounded grasp of reading chant notation and sing with confidence by the last day, for the final performance—chanting at the 12:15 Mass on Friday, August 19.

If you are in high school, or if your high-schooler would like to learn and grow in this ancient form of adoration in the Church, then complete the form below.

A registration fee of $50 per student will be collected to cover the cost of materials.
