What is the King's College Course?
St. Stephen's Episcopal Pro-Cathedral and King's College of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania are the sites of the King's College Choir Training Course sponsored by the Royal School of Church Music in America. The course will be held from Monday, July 18 through Sunday, July 24. It is the largest of its kind in North America, attracting more than one hundred fifty singers of all ages from ten years and up. The singers come from all across the United States.
Dorm rooms, dining facilities, a chapel, and rehearsal spaces are provided King's College, and the choral services and concerts are held primarily at St. Stephen's Pro-Cathedral.
Both choristers and adults enjoy a week of music-making, fun, prayer and fellowship in the beautiful Wyoming Valley. Nestled in the Appalachian mountains, Wilkes-Barre is a historic city on the east side of the Susquehanna River. King's College is within walking distance of downtown shopping, movies, riverfront parks, and historic churches.
