RSCM America is pleased to host the fourth annual summer training course in Newport, Rhode Island! Housed on the campus of Salve Regina University, this course welcomes choristers, teens and adults for a week of fine music making at several notable churches in this historic City by the Sea. New in 2013, we are pleased to welcome a track of gifted organ scholars who will work alongside the choristers while taking daily courses in service playing, accompanying and improvistion. 


We have a record number of registrants in 2013! Registration is now closed and the course is quickly approaching. Below you will find links to information that will help you prepare for the week. Please be sure to read through the course policies carefully and direct any questions to the Course Manager, Priscilla Rigg, at pamrigg2[at] or Registrar, Allen Hill, at a.jon[at]
