The Youth Vocal Camp will be July 17-24, 2016 and is open to students entering grades 7 – 12, and to graduating seniors.
This exciting Camp for serious vocal students will provide the opportunity for performance of choral literature of various styles, musical theatre, and art song repertoire. Additional classes will be offered in piano, music theory, and stage movement. Students will learn rehearsal techniques and performance skills through daily instruction in master classes, choral and “Broadway” rehearsals, and sectionals. In addition, student solo recitals, recreational activities, faculty performances and two gala concerts will be presented.
All students must send a cassette tape or CD of their vocal abilities for entrance into the camp, as well as to determine musical repertoire assignments. The tape or CD should include one art song in English OR in a foreign language AND one musical theatre selection. Enrollment will be limited. Students should be prepared to perform a solo art song in master class and on a recital during the camp. Bring TWO works from the song repertoire – one English and one in a foreign language. Please bring the original music.
