SongFest 2016 | August 1 – 5 | Xavier University Register Today!
SongFest offers a unique and rewarding musical experience for boys entering grades 2-12. SongFest includes choral rehearsals, music classes, games, piano, recreation, an included college cafeteria lunch, even a daily African drum circle – all on Xavier University’s beautiful campus!
Another exciting element of camp is our night out at Great American Ballpark with the Cincinnati Reds! In addition to all of our classes and rehearsals throughout the week, all of the boys will travel to a Reds home game to cheer on the team – and the Cincinnati Boychoir’s Tour Choir singing the national anthem!
This summer, we continue our relationship with Xavier University as we continue offering great musical, recreational and educational experiences to over 100 boys from throughout Greater Cincinnati!
All boys entering 2-12 grades who love to sing are invited to this camp. No audition or prior experience with the Boychoir is required!
