Junior Chorister Director


Soprano Elissa Edwards is a specialist in historically informed performances of music of the 17th and 18th centuries and is a voice faculty member at Washington National Cathedral and the Peabody Preparatory Institute of the Johns Hopkins. 


The course includes daily movement for young singers, warm-ups music games to build music literacy skills and healthy vocal techniques, all exercised through a joyful and spiritual interpretation of music from the Anglican and global choral traditions! Teaching methods are drawn from Ms. Edwards’ decade of voice training expertise and the Royal School of Church Music’s Voice for Life curriculum.

Daily activities include nature walks to the monastery, sketching in the gardens, musical twister, scavenger hunts, picnics and many more.

We encourage all local children who have an interest in music to join us for a week of song filled fun!
