Registrations now being accepted for dicocesan choir camp For the second year, youth from across the Upper Peninsula will have the opportunity to participate in the diocesan youth choir camp. This years camp is slated for Aug. 7-11 at St. Peter Cathedral in Marquette, which will be led by Samuel Holmberg, director of sacred music for the diocese. The camp, opened to ages 10-17 and all skill levels, is a week-long, full day camp of music, singing and fun. The camp staff will provide youth with a unique opportunity to learn music, play musical instruments, compose, and to develop their voices. Rounding out the days are outdoor activities, grill the priest sessions, games, and more. The camp closes with an end of the week concert that is open to the public on Aug. 11 at 4 p.m. at St. Peter Cathedral. Holmberg hopes, the choristers will take what they learn during the week and share it with their home parishes. The Church has a rich history in the spiritual and musical education of youth that dates back centuries. This spiritual and musical formation continues to be vitally important to the life of the Church, he added. Following the camp, youth will be invited back to the Cathedral throughout the year for dioce- san youth choir events. Last year, 25 choristers from parishes throughout the U.P. gathered together for the camp. I was impressed with how much the children learned just in one week last year in the Choir Camp, remarked Msgr. Michael Steber, pastor of St. Peter Cathedral. Their singing of Evening Prayer was beautiful and I enjoyed sharing in their Grill the Priest session they asked some good questions and we had fun. The cost of the camp is $30 per family and includes daily lunch and materials. Financial as- sistance and housing is available upon request. For more information or to register, contact Samuel Holmberg at sholmberg@dioceseofmar- quette.org or (906) 227-9122. Youth take part in the diocesan youth choir camp in 2016. This year's camp is set for Aug. 7-11.
