Developed to teach the basics of a cappella singing, (though some exploration of more traditional choral music will be included), this camp allows participants to explore their skills in contemporary a cappella. Campers will work together to learn about harmony, perfect various vocal techniques, and arrange their own music, as well as watch and discuss video clips. Additional workshops will cover topics such as movement and stage presence for singers. The week concludes with a performance open to friends and family.

NOTE: Campers who register and pay the nonrefundable $200 deposit by March 1, 2014, will receive a 20% discount. If you register and pay the deposit by May 1, you’ll receive a 10% discount. All payments are due in full by June 15. If your full payment is not received by that date your registration will be canceled and your deposit will not be refunded.
