I loved the conducting and the voice classes. I had heard a lot of that stuff before, but it finally clicked. I liked learning WHY or HOW conductors and singers do things.

A one week summer camp focused on making great choral and vocal music, the Summer Choral Leadership Academy is a residential academy for students who are interested in a future in Choral Leadership and Choral Conducting. While here, you will have a chance to grow as a singer, as a choral conductor, and as a choral singer while engaging in a fun week of hard work and great music making. As part of the choral academy, you will have the opportunity to:


1. Take part in group and private voice lessons where you will learn several songs that you can sing as a soloist.

2. Learn and refine your skills as a choral conductor.

3. Sing great music under the hands of master choral conductors as part of the Academy Chorus.

4. Have an opportunity to practice teaching and conducting others as part of the Academy Choir.

5. Sing in a recital at the end of the week.

6. Have fun with other like-minded musicians!

7. Earn college credit!


In addition, you will get to observe other choral conductors and choral music, interact with college music majors, and get ready to be a choral leader!
