High school musicians from across the region will be on campus next week for the Missouri State University Choral Institute summer choral camp. The culminating camp concert will be held at 6 p.m. on July 16 at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. The concert is free and open to the public.
Singing, seminars and scavenger hunts
The camp, taking place July 13-16, offers students the opportunity to work with Director of Choral Studies Dr. Cameron LaBarr and gain ensemble singing experience and musicianship skills, while making lifelong friends.
Students can participate in a variety of choral experiences including:
- Ensemble singing
- Solo voice study with MSU voice faculty
- Seminars on topics such as college audition prep, conducting, history of popular music and more
- Recreational activities such as talent shows, scavenger hunts and trip to a Springfield Cardinals’ baseball game
High school students from incoming freshmen to recently graduated seniors/incoming college freshmen are invited to register for the camp. Students can choose to live on campus or commute during the camp. Students are responsible for transportation to and from camp. The Choral Institute has a limited number of partial-tuition scholarships available to qualifying students. Go to the website for registration and scholarship details.
