Description

Under the direction of the Choral Area at JMU, talented elementary, middle and high school singers will have the opportunity to share in a weeklong summer experience of choral singing! In addition to daily rehearsals, movement classes and group social activities, campers receive daily Kodály-based and Orff musicianship classes. Our two Vocal Arts Choruses, the Treble Choir (for students who have completed grades 3-8 and have unchanged voices) and the Mixed Concert Choir (for students in grades 8-12 and have changed voices and high school singers of all voice parts) will be directed by Jo-Anne van der Vat-Chromy and Lynnel Joy Jenkins, nationally recognized leaders in choral music education. Both faculty and students from the Choral Music Education Area at JMU support and teach in this program. JMU is located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in the center of Harrisonburg, VA and is conveniently located just off Interstate 81. Camp activities will make use of several JMU facilities, Wampler Hall dormitory, and the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall; the setting for our Vocal Arts Camp Concert on Saturday, July TBA, at 11:00 am.
