Adult singers (college age and over) from around the area are invited to sing with members of the National Philharmonic Chorale under Artistic Director Stan Engebretson for two inspiring weeks of intensive rehearsals.

The Summer Choral Institute is produced through a partnership between the National Philharmonic and Montgomery College, and is led by distinguished faculty from area universities and choral groups.
