Combining choral ensemble singing, voice lessons, and music classes, VAI offers energized and challenging experiences focused on both choral and solo vocal training. Small group voice lessons allow participants to study with UM voice faculty members and class offerings include ensemble rehearsals and theory/musicianship classes. As members of the Vocal Arts Institute Chorale, all students have an opportunity to rehearse and perform diverse and exciting SATB repertoire.
The Vocal Arts Institute Chorale will perform on the final Saturday and student recitals allow participants to perform solo works throughout the week. Class offerings include:
- Vocal Arts Institute Chorale
- Small group voice lessons
- Dalcroze Eurhythmics
This workshop is devoted to the enhancement of beautiful and communicative choral singing. Sessions on rehearsal techniques, Dalcroze, male and female voice techniques, African music, compelling performances, voice placement, score study, and movement will take place during the Symposium. Students will conduct in class and be videotaped to aid in the evaluation of their work. Reading sessions of new repertoire will take place daily as well as practical opportunities for workshop participants.
