All youth are invited to participate in the BYC Summer Sing from July 25-29, 2022. Summer Sing is a week-long day camp, open to youth in grades 3-7. The camp welcomes all children – no auditions take place. BYC Summer Sing is for kids who love to sing and want an exciting summer experience with other kids across the county.
Summer Sing 2022 only costs $10 to participate. The camp will be held at Atonement Lutheran Church, 5 Wyomissing Boulevard, Wyomising, from Monday, July 25 through Friday, July 29. The camp will end with a performance on Friday afternoon.
Summer Singers work hard and play hard, with serious music and engaging camp activities. The program includes singing in small and large groups, sight singing, theory, choreography and vocal technique. Campers will also create their own songs together and learn how they can better serve our community through their music. Music represents a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. Each singer receives an official Summer Sing t-shirt and receives all music and gear.
All young people are also welcome to join Berks Youth Chorus. Founded in 1992, BYC has served thousands of young people through a world-class choral program that runs from September to May each year. Members, grades 3 through 12, receive high-quality vocal instruction and perform at venues throughout Berks County. BYC singers enjoy the company of dozens of singers while performing and developing teamwork skills. They also receive leadership opportunities and give back to the community through the Chorus For Causes program.
All BYC singers must participate in their school’s music programs in order to join Berks Youth Chorus. Berks Youth Chorus is a proud partner of Berks County School Districts and aims to enrich the musical education its singers receive from every teacher in their lives.
Members of BYC Choristers (grades 3-4) and BYC Chorale (grades 5-7) also attend Summer Sing to prepare for the upcoming year of choral singing. Summer singers are encouraged to continue singing at school and join BYC. The BYC MasterSingers are attending a retreat August 5-7 instead of Summer Sing.
