Berkshire Choral Festival

December 27th, 2012

From Chorister Grace: Please share with the NOVA chorus members – the video about BCF runs about 8 minutes.

The 2013 summer programs include a week at Sonoma University in California and a week in Edinburgh, Scotland in June, as well as a choice of four one week programs in Sheffield, Massachusetts in July.

The apprentice program and Berkshire Scholar program are limited to the Massachusetts venue. Apprentices attend all four weeks in Massachusetts and receive a small stipend. Berkshire Scholars attend one week tuition-free – only expense is transportation to/from the venue.

There is no audition requirement. Applications received after January 1st are accepted on a space available basis, but each week in Massachusetts accepts 200 singers, and many singers are accepted after initial acceptance letters are sent late in January. Due to space constraints at Greyfriars’s Kirk the week in Edinburgh was limited to a smaller group in 2012, and probably will be again in 2013. BCF also provides information on local attractions for non-singing partners and facilitates non-singers in group outings if desired.
