This camp will be going offsite this year and into your community for students grades 6-8. This year, HGO is partnering with Wheeler Avenue Baptist for an exciting camp. In one week, campers collaborate to write, design, build, and perform a one-of-a-kind musical masterpiece based on a children’s story. This camp is perfect for singers and non-singers alike! Presented in collaboration with Wheeler Avenue Baptist & pARTnerschools.
Campers enhance their vocal and dramatic skills by rehearsing and performing a fully staged musical revue. This exciting camp fills quickly: register early to guarantee a spot! No audition is required to register. Please follow audition materials below for solo and lead opportunities. All campers will perform various selections from opera, musical theater, and more, accompanied, in portion, by one of AFA’s ensemble groups in a musical revue. Scholarships are available. Receive $50 off tuition if you also sign up for AFA’s sister camp Vocal Artist Intensive.
Now in its second year, the AFA Vocal Artist Intensive provides tools, training, and experiences appropriate for vocalists who are focused on developing themselves as young artists in a positive, supportive environment. Students will learn a new contemporary piece of music to be studied and developed with the VAI Faculty Artists (who are affiliated with Houston Grand Opera) during daily studio voice classes; they will also take part in ensemble singing, diction classes, as well as yoga, Alexander Technique and movement, all of which support the development and wellness of the voice. A series of seminars featuring special guests will include vocal health, college insights, career and professional life, and more. Receive $25 off tuition if you also sign up for HGO Community and Learning’s sister camp Art of Opera!
