St. Stephen’s Pro-Cathedral and King’s College in Wilkes-Barre have proudly hosted the King’s College Summer Choir Training Course, sponsored by The Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCMA). During the last week of July, a choir of over 150 singers of all ages from throughout the United States will sing sacred music of unparalleled spirituality and beauty in the great Anglican choral tradition.

In this, the largest of the summer courses, girls, boys, and adults sing both their own repertoire and as a combined chorus. There are unique opportunities for young adults and adults to include a separate Compline Choir. King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. offers a splendid location in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. The reverberant and versatile worship space of St. Stephen’s Church provides an ideal setting for inspiring music-making and liturgy.
