Choristers Training & Summer Choir School
Choristers in grades 4-8 participate in the Choristers Training Program, based on the merit system of the Royal School of Church Music in America. Building on the experience of their earlier years, our choristers develop more complex skills to enable them to undertake leadership in worship, deepen their understanding of scripture, and build confidence and expertise in music. As they complete the requirements for successive levels, they earn the unique West Side Choristers' Medal, symbolizing their commitment and increasing musical skills.
Summer Choir School
Mark your calendar now for the 41st annual West Side Summer Choir School, August 19-23. Registration will begin in May. This year's curriculum is "A Journey through Holy Week."
During the week of August 20-24, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., kids in
grades 1-8 attended this year’s version, which has a theme of “A Faith that
Sings! Experiencing the Psalms.” This was a week of fun, study, and some hard
work, closing with a special service on Friday, August 24 at 7:30 p.m. Besides
singing and music, there were also fun electives, including cooking, sports
& games, and Orff Instruments.
