I'll be seeing you,
Below I'm including some of my favorite singing/choir quotes, and some of my favorite photos from Choir Camp!
With love and song,
"Those who wish to sing always find a song."
"I don't sing because I'm happy; I'm happy because I sing." ~William James
"Life is a song. Love is the music."
"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories." ~George Eliot

Consider the reasons you love music.
Do you love to sing because you can express yourself?
Because you enjoy the collaboration with other individuals?
Because of your drive for success and mastery?
Because of the people you sing with?
Well... if you answered yes to any of these then it is clear that camp is for you. You will get to experience all of these on an all new level. I hope to see you all there and share in making my first camp experience with YPC Erie a great one!

Hey guys and gals, camp is exactly one month away and I cannot wait! (Hopefully all of your registrations are in by now…) The thing that excites me the most is seeing a bunch of you guys come in, some knowing each other and some not, but all leaving with a feeling of family- and what a family to be a part of! I like to think of myself as that one uncle you can tell anything to and he’ll totally understand where you’re coming from. But that’s just me- you have all of the other rock star counselors to be able to talk to day or night, be it for a laugh on Monday or a shoulder to cry on that last day. We are all very excited to get to spend a week with you all again, and meeting some of you for the first time. We all know the main reason why we are here, but just as important are the friendships and experiences we all make together over the course of several days. For better or best, we’re in this together and we will all inspire one another to try harder than we think possible, have more fun than we can imagine, and all the while gaining a good hard look at just what we are capable of when we put our collective minds together. As they say, two heads are better than one but as I say, 100 heads are even better than that.
See y’all soon!
