Camp Zengit Gütenproper
Before the start of each choir season, the Tour choirboys attend their summer vocal training center – Camp Zengit Gütenproper. For a week they receive instruction in vocal technique, music theory, repertoire, movement and stage presence. They also participate in crafts, sports, swimming, and other related camp activities while experiencing a well-balanced blend of fun and rehearsing, home-cooked meals and a stimulating program with exciting goals.
Boyish energy is channeled into dedication to excel, team effort, and hard work. In this informal setting, the bonding process, so essential to a choral ensemble, begins. In January, the boys again head back to camp for their winter retreat. These two camp experiences have become an integral part of the entire Tour Choir program, helping transform young boys into mature choristers.
