Berkshire Choral International

Vacations were made for singing!

Is singing choral music your passion? A Berkshire Choral International singing vacation is a chance to immerse yourself in this vital art form. You’ll rehearse with and learn from an eminent conductor and a professional faculty for a week, then perform in a full symphony concert. All in an inspiring, culturally rich setting. If that sounds like heaven to you…welcome to the Berkshire Choral International family!
