What happens at the choir camp? Singers make new musical friends; improve their singing skills; sing in a variety of musical styles, cultures and traditions; and perform in a final celebration concert with the InterMuse adult Chamber Choir.  

*Choir Camp students must be able to attend all rehearsals AND participate in the final concert.

For Parents

The BYU InterMuse Academy is a safe environment for children. All Choir Camp staff who work directly with children are carefully pre-screened (fingerprinted and background-checked) in addition to their professional teaching credentials. Although adult participants in the InterMuse certification classes may be observing Choir Camp rehearsals as part of their coursework, they will be doing so without any direct physical or verbal contact with the children.
