27th Annual Choir Camp

This past weekend we had our first program camp of the year at Magruder. It was the 27th annual Choir Camp. We had over 70 choir enthusiasts at camp who learned 10 anthems. They performed at the annual Sunday night concert that drew nearly 80 community members. This was certainly one of the biggest and most successful Choir Camps that we have hosted in some time.


This event offers an opportunity to learn new music that you get to take home to your church choir. People who are used to singing in small choirs at home also get the opportunity to sing with a much larger choir.


Amongst all the choir practices, there is time for workshops of all sorts, beach walking, enjoying the fellowship of people all over the conference, and a talent show.


Here's what people had to say about Choir Camp this year:

"My first Choir Camp- definitely not my Last! The entire experience was amazing- music, people, workshops and the over-arching strength of faith and love of God that permeates everything and everyone." -Janice Stevens

"Choir Camp is a gathering of folks who come together intending to be open hearted and open minded- to give and receive joy!" -Tillie Makepeace

"Choir Camp should be at the top of every choir director's agenda. It's a wonderful venue to be exposed to new music, build the choral library inexpensively, re-charge choir member interest through the high quality of musicianship singing with a large group and perhaps most importantly, connect with God and fellow Christians through music." - Gregg Mitchell

We can't wait until next year for more adventures with Choir Camp. If you have ever attended Choir Camp at Camp Magruder, feel free to send me your photos. I'll attach them to the blog and facebook for all to enjoy.
