Singing in the Pines – Love Out Loud

Saturday, August 8 – Wednesday, August 12, 2020
Dean: Scott Roewe
Choir Director: Donald Milton III


Along with towering trees and refreshing breezes, love will be in the air at Choir Camp this year. Sharing the weekend with Adult Camp Summer Break it will abound with beauty, new and long-standing friends, workshops, swimming, hot-tubbing, great food, and songs about love in many forms.

Choir Camp Dean, Scott Rowe, is a multifaceted musician, performing and recording artist, composer, choir director, and teacher. Scott is currently the Jazz Band Director at New Roads High School in Santa Monica California and taught during the Crossroads High School 2008, 2009 and 2010 Summer Jazz Camps. Since 2004 Scott has served as the music director at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Santa Clarita. His musical virtuosity has been known to bring both smiles and tears to those who experience his music.

Joining Scott as featured Choir Director is Donald Milton III. Last year Don wowed choir participants and audience members alike with his energy and dynamic and insightful manner of musical arrangement and directing.  Don is the full-time Director of Music at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta (UUCA), the largest UU congregation in the Southeast.  At UUCA Don runs one of the most eclectic and exceptional music programs in the city and in the denomination. Active in the Atlanta music scene, Don has served as executive and artistic director of numerous musical organizations including Sky Punch, a company he founded which produces sing-alongs, concerts, and other interactive community music events. In January 2018, Don was appointed Artistic Director of the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus. Don’s energy and inspiration are infectious, and he can encourage a confident voice from the most reluctant of singers.

Join Scott, Don, and other lovers of song at Singing in the Pines 2020, Love Out Loud, for a not-to-be-missed week of joyful singing, love, laughter, and fellowship. Registration is limited to 20 people. Be sure you are a part of it.
