Who Should Attend?


Years 1, 2, and 3 - Certification Program

The Institute is designed for Directors who are currently leading young singers, K-8, in a Christian church or school setting and those preparing to be full-time, part-time, or committed volunteer choir directors in these settings.

A degree in music is not required, but musical literacy is fundamental to success as a participant in the Choristers Guild Institute.

First year participants are required to submit a Letter of Support from a supervising Pastor or staff member.  A sample letter is available here.

CGI Certified Alumni (Certified Directors of Young Singers)

Institute alumni are invited to return for a full week (Sunday to Saturday) or join us Friday evening for the Helen Kemp Banquet.  Alumni will have the opportunity to select from classes offered.  We urge alumni to make their reservations early so we can staff the Institute to meet alumni needs.
