UW-Whitewater Camps & Conferences
The UW-Whitewater Solo Voice Camp is the ideal camp for young singers in grades 9-12 including graduating seniors who have some solo experience and would like to learn more about their voice and the world of the singer-actor in a supportive atmosphere. Students interested in pursuing a career in vocal performance or vocal music education are encouraged to attend. Daily Master Classes will include stage deportment, song interpretation, diction for singers, and working with conductors.
Students will receive daily lessons (included in tuition) that will focus on posture, breathing, support, healthy production and projection of the voice. Coaching is also an integral part of the solo singer’s life. Students will also have coaching with pianists and faculty on collaboration. Evenings will consist of student recitals, mock audition seminars and performances by faculty and staff.
We are pleased to announce our Solo Voice Camp faculty this year: Soprano Mary Anne Scott from Butler University and Kathy Kraulik, coach-accompanist with Project Opera! (http://www.mnopera.org/learn/for-kids/project-opera/) Our two camp counselors, Ariel Jean Wilberg and Josh Wang will be with us again this year before beginning their graduate studies at the University of Minnesota and Bowling Green University.
Enrollment is limited to the first 40 applicants.
