Is singing choral music your passion? A Berkshire Choral Festival 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 BCF family!

If you apply for a waitlisted week, you will not be charged the registration fee unless or until you are placed. Below are the openings as of 1/15/14. This list will be updated as appropriate.
