Who We Are:

SSCC is a community-based choral program made up of over 80 singers representing 17 different local cities and towns. SSCC was founded in 2016 in order to provide musical education and vocal training to students living in the South Shore communities and beyond. SSCC keeps the development and well-being of our students as our top priority, and aims to create a safe space and loving community for choristers to learn, to grow, and to find their own voice.

The Summer Choral Intensive is a program that focuses on themes of leadership, personal responsibility, and musical intelligence. Students will be encouraged to prepare for the week with learning tools and aid provided by SSCC Staff in order to perform high-level choral repertoire. Students will also have the opportunity to attend music theory class geared for their level of knowledge, hear from guest speakers such as local professors and professional musicians, and benefit from group sectionals with a professional section leader of their specific voice type. The week culminates in a final performance on Friday evening, July 15th, featuring choral works rehearsed during the program.

Choral Intensive Section Leaders must be available for the entirety of the camp, Monday, July 13, 2020 – Friday, July 17, 2020, 8:30 am – 4:00pm daily, and available for the final performance in the evening of July 17, 2020.
