8:30am Greeting (10-15 minutes)
Each day starts with team-building activities so that every child feels welcomed and ready for the day.
8:45am Warm-ups (10-15 minutes)
Warm-ups are designed to prepare the body for healthy singing and include posture, breath, and singing techniques.
9:00am Group/Sectional rehearsal (45 minutes)
Group Rehearsal is the bulk of the work. This is when we learn our songs and prepare for the performance. The choir is split into sections for small-group practice on Tuesday and Thursday.
9:50am Music game break (10 minutes)
After rehearsal, kids will unwind with a group music game. These games are low-stress and lots of fun!
10:00am Rhythm/solfege reading workshop (15 minutes)
At this point, kids will learn how to use rhythmic and solfege tools to read and understand music. No music-reading experience necessary!
10:15am choreography/dance (45 minutes)
Lisa takes over here! Kids will learn choreographed dances for each of the songs they sing in rehearsal.
11:30am lunch/snack time (20 minutes)
After a long day of music, it's time to relax and refuel. Lunches and snacks must be brought from home, food is not provided at the camp.
11:55am closing activities (30 minutes)
Closing activities are designed so that kids go home with a smile on their faces. Activities may include singing simple folk songs, simple yoga and stretching, and listening activities.
The Intermediate Choir is great for kids who are interested in singing in middle school. No experience is required, but participation in the Youth Choir or other school choir is highly recommended. This choir dives into intermediate choral singing techniques and music literacy, while still offering a fun, low-stress atmosphere with plenty of fun songs and activities.
