Description: Sing like you’ve never sung before when you join the very popular Summer Voices! Now in its sixth year, Summer Voices provides a vocal music camp experience unlike any other, where participants will join in solo singing and voice training, ensemble-based music-making, music theory and aural skills, and special interest sessions which enhance every student’s musicality in a fun and safe summer camp environment. Within the camp, students will be placed into age-based, developmentally-appropriate groups to give students the most optimal musical experience. In these groups, each singer will develop his or her love of music, further develop vocal skills, and increase musical knowledge and understanding. The camp will culminate in a showcase performance for friends and family at 2:00pm on the final day. Camp faculty includes Matthew LaPine (Director of Education), Stephen Sands (Artistic Director), Dan Foster (Founder and Director of Aoede Consort), and Gabrielle San Roman (graduate of Westminster Choir College). Please bring a lunch each day. All students entering grades 2-12 are welcome (students will be split into groups by age during the camp day). Tuition: $200 (before May 15); $225 (after May 15).

Description: It’s time to bring your dream to fruition with our Adult Guitar Workshop! This quick-start program will guide you every step of the way toward your goal of learning how to play the guitar. The course will begin by teaching you the basics of tuning the guitar and advance you through playing complete songs. By the end of the summer, you will have the tools needed to excel on guitar playing long after this program has ended! All participants must have their own guitar – acoustic (preferred) or electric with your own amp.
