The Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul is offering a great opportunity for kids this summer — a two-day Cathedral Choir festival to take place July 23 and 24, running each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and culminating in a 7 p.m. concert July 24.
The Cantate Domino camp will be open to all boys and girls throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, ages 7-15. It will provide a unique musical experience, which includes an introduction to sacred repertoire as well as vocal breathing techniques, vowel formation, choral tone, sight singing and music theory.
At the end of the two days, those students who would like to audition and stay as members of the Archdiocesan Children’s Choir would continue their studies on July 25 and 26 to learn the choral anthems to be performed throughout the 2018-2019 season.
Tuition for the camp is $50 for the first chorister, $25 for each additional chorister per family. Lunch and a snack will be provided each day.
The staff for Cantate Domino includes: Charlene Angelini, director of Cathedral Parish Music, Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul; Danielle Molan, Archdiocesan Children’s Choir director, Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul; Nathan Knutson, director of Sacred Music, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary; Lisa Knutson, administrator of the Zipoli Institute for Sacred Music; and Mark Loria, principal organist at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
