Blue Lake’s Choir Program is designed to challenge students of all proficiency levels. Our highly regarded faculty provide a wide range of instructional and performance opportunities. Students explore repertoire from a variety of musical styles and historical periods and practice fundamental skills in sight singing, breath management, tone production, stage presence, diction, solo and ensemble singing, and basic musicianship. Choir majors receive five hours of intensive daily rehearsal, sectionals, and vocal technique classes.
Students can complete their instructional experience by choosing a Minor, allowing them to experience another area of interest while at camp. See minors for a complete listing of courses. Students also have the opportunity to hear various faculty and staff performances presented as a part of Blue Lake’s Summer Arts Festival, as well as participate in recreational activities and other camp events.
Students will be grouped by ability in either the SATB Choir or the SSA(A) Choir. Advanced students will also be placed in the Chamber Choir. The audition will evaluate tone quality, vocal independence, and sight reading ability. Camp concludes with a performance for parents and the public that features all three of our choirs.
