Choir & A Cappella Boot Camp
Written by Jo Ann CImato on Friday, August 26, 2016 14:36:11 EST:

You sing like a beast in your bedroom, in the stairwell, in the park. But you WANT to sing in a rock band, on a viral YouTube video, in a show, on the Sing Off, The Voice?

If you want to learn HOW to sing, or how to train healthy vocal instrument, come sing with us!

Please join us in the Drama Studio on Tuesday August 30 and/ or Wednesday August 31 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for a little pre-school Choir Boot Camp.

We’ll be getting to know our new Musical Director Tegan Miller and trying out some new material for our first big gig first semester.

All are welcome. Even if you’ve been singing since you could speak or have never opened your mouth to make music in your life. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. For real. We want YOU!
