Berkshire Choral Festival 2014

November 5th, 2013

From Chorister Grace: Registration is now open for The Berkshire Choral Festival’s 2014 season –  BCF is offering a choice of six one week vacations next year, three in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, one in Winter Park, FL, one in Maynooth, Ireland (near Dublin), and one in Scheggino, Italy.  The last one is already full, but you can sign up for the wait list and hope if that’s the place you want to sing.

The web site has been redesigned and allows you to sign up for the BCF newsletter and get news about their programs without committing to anything, as well as allowing online registration if you want to do that.  There’s also a link to the YouTube video done a couple of years ago, which is a good introduction to BCF.

BCF offers a BCF Scholar program for young singers. We had five alto scholars the week I went last year.  One was a senior in college, and two had just graduated last spring.  The scholar attend the week free (lodging, meals, tuition)- only major expense is getting there and back.  It’s really a terrific opportunity for young musicians.  Applications for the Scholar program don’t close until April, so there’s time to think about it.

Applications for the rest of us are due in January, although registrations are accepted after that if the chorus is not yet full.
