Recital Night

(map & directions

A highlight of the Choir School experience is Recital Night, a formal presentation of the finest performances representing a wide array of instruments and experience levels. Recital Night is an excellent opportunity to present your highest quality performance pieces in a formal concert environment. Auditions are open to the Choir School family. Appropriate material for Recital Night includes vocal, instrumental, small ensemble, dance, poetry, etc. Recital material should be considered "classical" in nature. The audition committee  selects recitalists based on performance quality, appropriateness, poise, and balance of program. In keeping with the formality of the occasion, performers dress in their best concert attire.

Recital Night performance (7:00 pm) preceds our evening worship which begins at 8:15 pm. The public is also certainly welcome to join our ecumenical evening worship service if they desire.

Thursday Night Live is a variety show for campers only. It's an evening where we can be comfortable and have fun being ourselves. Acts with singing, dancing, comedy, etc. are needed. Come with ideas for a fun 3-5 minute act. You may want to work with other Choir School people during the week and work up a group act. Bring your music, props, costuming, and ideas and we will have fun!
