Camp Features

Choir and Ensemble Rehearsals
All singers will work with FSU faculty in a large mixed choir, and a women's or men's choir.  They will also work in sectionals, a variety of small ensembles, and in a men's or women's Finale group. Ensembles will be socially distanced and students will take regular outdoor breaks.

Elective Classes
All singers will take conducting and musicianship class daily.

Performance Opportunities
Camp will conclude with two final performances; a Friday night Small Ensembles Concert and a Saturday morning Choirs concert.  Each camper will be limited to 2 audience tickets per camper per event due to hall capacity restrictions.  Campers will receive their performance tickets at check-in.

Honors Solo Recital
Rising 11th graders, Rising 12th graders, and graduated seniors may choose to audition for the Honors Solo Recital.  Select singers will perform a solo piece at a special concert on Thursday evening. These students will also be assigned to the Class Voice elective in lieu of conducting or musicianship, where they will have the opportunity to work on their piece.

Evening Activities
The week is filled with fun and challenging music and social activities.  Music rehearsals take place on most evenings, but on Wednesday evening recreation activities are planned. A full recreation schedule will be provided two weeks before camp begins.
