St. Cuthbert’s Church in North Delta will be running its first ever choir day camp, for young people 8-18 years of age.

Choir Camp is a weeklong experience for youth (and a two evening experience for adults) where sacred choral music is enjoyed in a day camp setting. We will sing a lot, play a lot, make new friends, and learn more than we realize in our short time together.

Along with the usual day camp activities (crafts, games, out trips etc.), all participants will be in the choir that will be training towards leading Sunday worship at St. Cuthbert's on July 24, with hymns, anthems and other music of the liturgy. We will be learning new choral music with guest conductor, Murray Walker, who will teach some great church music and make you sound wonderful.

Older teens will be an important part of the choir but can also choose to practise their leadership skills, helping out with activities for younger kids. AlI young people are welcome whether you have singing or choir experience or not. All that is needed is a love of music and a willingness to learn.

For the adults, current St. Cuthbert's choristers, parents, and church members at large, our guest conductor will also be running two evenings and one Saturday rehearsal, so that they may also participate in one grand choir for Sunday morning. 

Our guest conductor is Murray Walker, the Director of Music at Calvary Episcopal Church, Santa Cruz.  A native of Vancouver, Mr. Walker holds music degrees in choral conducting from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver and California State University, Long Beach. He is retired from a forty-year career as a music educator, most recently at the York School in Monterey.
