  • Session 1: June 16-21, 2024

BCYC Immersion's Choral Singing track is for high school students who want to experience the power and energy of singing in community with one another. Students will build their individual musicianship and discover their integral contribution to the ensemble. The week will conclude with Mass; students will lead the Liturgical Music in the beautiful Benedictine Abbey. Choral Singing students will showcase the Catholic Choral repertoire in a public concert following Mass.
