City Music Center's Summer Vocal Intensive is a 5-day program where participants will work to cultivate and strengthen the full performer! Throughout the week we will be working on both solo and ensemble singing, developing healthy vocal technique, creating a character, staging and movement, and storytelling through song. The workshop is open to singers and performers between ages 7 and 17. No prior singing experience is necessary. Parents are invited to a concert performance on the final day of the intensive.
