Choir camp kicks off

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Some children in Savannah are spending their last weeks of summer inside the classroom - singing.

On Monday, they kicked off the Savannah Children's Choir summer camp. The camp is two weeks long and allows children from all over Savannah to get a chance to participate in the choir.

At the end of the camp, they will perform a concert of all the music they learned during the camp. Organizers said the camp helps them succeed in other subjects, too.

"The interesting thing is the parallel between music and math and other subjects. We teach the kids advanced music and advanced musical concepts - so the carry over is just amazing," said Roger Moss, artistic director of the Savannah Children's Choir.

The camp also doubles as auditions for the Savannah Children's Choir. This year, their top choir is going to Vienna and Prague.
