Camp Features

Mixed Choir, Women's & Men's Choir and Small Ensembles
From 8am – 5pm, vocalists have the opportunity to study and sing in an environment designed to provide ensemble experience with personal attention. Campers work with FSU faculty in a large mixed choir, a women’s or men’s choir, and a variety of small ensembles, as well as take classes which focus on sight reading, theory, diction, and repertoire.

Daily Elective Classes
Two elective classes are taken each day and students may choose from chamber choir, sight-reading, choral theory, conducting, diction and musicianship.

Performance Opportunities
Camp will conclude with two final performances. On Friday evening, campers will perform with their small ensembles in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. On Saturday morning, campers will perform with their choirs in Opperman Music Hall.

Honors Solo Recital and Chamber Choir
Campers may choose to audition for the Honors Solo Recital and/or the Chamber Choir. 

  • Honors Solo Recital
    Selected singers will perform on Thursday evening at the Honors Solo Recital. These students will also be assigned to the Class Voice elective (as one of their two daily electives) where they will have the opportunity to work on their piece.
  • Chamber Choir
    Campers who are selected will be assigned to the Chamber Choir elective (as one of their two daily electives). The Chamber Choir will perform during the final performance on Saturday morning.
