Amherst College Session 1: June 23-28
Amherst College Session 2: July 7-12
Bowdoin College Session 1: July 14-19
Over the course of one week, SING! Jr. students will attend a variety of classes that help young students explore their voices and build musicianship skills. Music classes—group technique, choral ensemble, musical theater, and collegiate-style a cappella—are interspersed with enrichment classes and recreational activities, providing vocal rest and social opportunities for students.
The SING! Jr. program is for students entering grades 2-6. As part of SING! Jr. students will experience not only a truly magical, musical week, but will also gain increased vocal confidence and musical skills, all while making a great group of new friends.
SING! Jr. is led by distinguished faculty members who work with young singers throughout the year. In addition, college-aged counselors provide supervision throughout the day (and in residential dorms). Learn more about our faculty and staff here.
For students entering grades 2-4, we recommend the day program, which is selected by most students of this age. Arrival for this program is at 8:45am and includes all musical classes and recreational activities. The day ends at 3:30pm (Jr. Package).
Students in grades 5 or 6 can also choose to select Package A, B, or C. For a slightly longer daytime program, ending at 5:45pm, select Package C. For a daytime and evening program, which includes dinner and evening activities with departure at 9:00pm, select Package B. Students who prefer to stay overnight in an on-campus dormitory can select the residential program (Package A). All students eat meals in the campus dining hall.
