Summer 2016 Precollege Programs in the Arts:
Creative Vocal Lab

trio of teenage singers

Grades 8–12

Location: Music Bldg., Room 0052

Explore and expand your musical creativity in this one-of-a-kind voice workshop and become part of a completely original vocal ensemble. Through daily improvisation and technical work, you will become more familiar with your own vocal anatomy and experience the fundamentals of vocal production through the creation of spontaneous harmonies and expressive music. You will also be a member of a small a cappella ensemble, in which you will be challenged to produce all sorts of sounds and original compositions.

Creative Vocal Lab seeks to demystify the “magic” of a cappella singing, equipping you with the tools, tricks, and instincts that allow for on-the-spot vocal harmonies, thinking musically on your feet, and creating entire pieces of music using nothing but the voices, ears, and minds of you and your friends. Receive a DVD of the final concert.

To broaden exposure to the arts, the Creative Vocal Lab can be combined with the Songwriting Workshop, Vocal Intensive, 3-D Video Game and Makers Lab Creations (new!), Minecraft™ Animators and Modders (updated!), Modern Journalism (updated!), Architecture Intensive, Neu Curators (new!), and/or Shakespeare Workshop to make for a well-rounded summer experience. (Refer to youth programs for students in grade 8.)

$1,200 for the first registration
