No more seating auditions on the first day of camp! Now your video audition will determine ensemble, section AND seating.*
Auditions will consist of scales, solo pieces, and a certain number of prepared excerpts. You can just record your audition with your phone or tablet, upload it to YouTube, and paste the shareable link into your online application!
All orchestral excerpts are taken directly from the music we will be performing together in August, so be to sure to prepare well for your audition!
*There may be a finals round for various orchestras to determine section leaders and soloists. In this case, a second audition video will be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year’s camp includes a Choral Workshop for non-string players. Students can choose between 2 classes (Group Voice Master Class with Suanne Bowcut or Broadway with Miriam Burton). The workshop includes a choir enrichment class each day (Vivace Youth Choir – ages 6-11 with Suanne Bowcut or Vivace Singers – ages 12+ with Dr. Ryan Murphy). The choirs will be singing at the Saturday concert at 11:00 am. Come sing with us! The Choral Workshop is Monday-Friday from 10:00-1:30. Cost – $125. Register on the Choral Workshop page found on the dropdown menu (About) at the top of the website.
Our 2021 camp is now scheduled for August 2-7, 2021. Mark your calendars, and plan on another amazing camp. We’re thrilled to announce Dr. Murphy will be returning as our guest conductor! We will have all the orchestras we had in 2020, plus a beginning adult orchestra, and we’re expecting to be able to bring back the choir class, led by Dr. Murphy (COVID restrictions willing). We’ll provide more details soon!
