About the School of Choral Studies


There are no calendar events right now.

Experience the joy of singing, the thrill of performing, and the power of choral music with other talented students and a superb artistic faculty during four weeks of intensive vocal and musical instruction at the School of Choral Studies.

A nationally acclaimed choral faculty will provide you with an excellent music education and daily instruction in choral singing and comprehensive musicianship. You will study private voice and have the opportunity to participate in musical theater and opera scenes, stagecraft and movement, small ensembles, and voice recitals.

You will perform with the NYSSSA Chorale in the magnificent Rosch Recital Hall at the Rockefeller Center for the Arts at SUNY Fredonia and in the Amphitheater at the famous Chautauqua Institution.

You will be housed on the SUNY Fredonia campus and use the excellent facilities of the music department. In addition to a rigorous program in choral studies, you will enjoy a variety of cultural activities, including concerts, opera and theater performances at the Chautauqua Institution, as well as master classes and workshops by guest artists.

The School of Choral Studies is co-sponsored by SUNY Fredonia and the New York State School Music Association, and is administered by the New York State Education Department. Music educators are encouraged to visit the school and observe all aspects of the program.
