This programme will challenge students to grow as a complete singer in both ensemble and solo opportunities. Through singing in a small chorale and a large festival choir, students will enhance their vocal technique and musical expression. The programme also features private voice lessons and masterclass opportunities for all singers to develop their solo voices in the classical and musical theatre cannon.
Specific skills to be developed include:
- Healthy tone production
- Dramatic expression in classical and theatrical music
- Strengthened understanding of artistic discipline
- Sight-singing and leadership skills
- Vocal technique
Courses & Experiences
Students may choose to apply as a Voice major for either the Young Artist or Discovery programme.
The Young Artist programme is tailored for students ages 14-18 (some exceptions possible), who are serious about the pursuit of classical voice and have had some experience and/or private training. Students will dedicate their entire day to the study of choral, solo, and chamber music, with an emphasis on individual lessons and coachings. The programme builds towards a final solo and chamber performance.
The Discovery programme is an exciting opportunity for students ages 10-18 who wish to study both singing and another artistic area. The focus of this programme is musical development as well as the choral experience. Students will participate in ensemble and master class style instruction, with many opportunities to work closely with Juilliard artist faculty. The programme culminates with a performance in the final concert.
