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.
