The Perth Choral Institute Summer School is an eight-day residential course for singers aged 15 to 25. It provides an intensive but highly enjoyable week of training in singing and choral music. Participants receive individual singing lessons, group workshops, small ensemble rehearsals and multiple performance opportunities.

The objective of this course is to offer developing singers a unique opportunity to perform at the highest level with like-minded musicians, providing a gateway to the rich choral scene of Western Australia.

The core ensemble of the Choral Course is the Choir, which is made up of all participants. The Choir rehearsals will dominate the daily timetable of the course, as the ensemble prepares for four performances with the Course Director and guest conductors.

Another essential part of the experience for participants is the Consort. The Choir will be split into smaller balanced groups of approximately ten members, working on unaccompanied music of varying styles ranging from Madrigals to Gospel.

Every performance will feature new and often challenging repertoire, and will teach participants the various skills that a professional choral singer should be familiar with.

As part of the Christ Church 125 celebrations, the PCI Choir and Consorts will perform a selection of Opera, Jazz, Broadway and Contemporary choral works in the beautiful setting of Christ Church Claremont. The ensembles will be directed by Marilyn Phillips, Micheál McCarthy and Hugh Lydon. Jonathan Bradley will accompany on both piano and organ.

A drinks reception will follow the performance in the Church Hall.
