  • About

    Berkshire Choral International is the premier international educational institution dedicated to enhancing the skills of choral singers, while extending the knowledge and appreciation of choral singing and its tradition to singers and audiences. We accomplish this by establishing environments in which singers, conductors and other music professionals can immerse themselves and flourish as musicians; creating opportunities for singers to work with pre-eminent conductors and professional musicians; providing development and scholarship opportunities for young musicians; and striving for quality performances that challenge the chorus and attract outstanding conductors and appreciative audiences.

    Each year, Berkshire Choral International brings together up to 800 choristers from the U.S. and abroad to rehearse and perform the great choral-orchestral masterpieces. Choristers attend classes in a variety of musical subjects and rehearse for five hours a day to prepare for concerts with orchestra, outstanding soloists and distinguished choral conductors. Berkshire Choral International offers the competitive Apprentice Program for professional-track, post-graduate singers and conductors, and the Berkshire Scholar Program, which invites upward of thirty college-aged students to attend a singing week on full scholarship. Berkshire Choral International is proud to acknowledge more than 7,000 alumni.
