"Camp A Cappella CT" located in Westport, CT, was created to give singers an opportunity to perform in a cappella ensembles led by members of the award-winning group, Backtrack Vocals. Participants will improve their vocal technique, music reading skills, and will learn how to blend their voices to create a warm, rich and uplifting ensemble experience. Instructors will also include professional tips on how to create your own style and choreography on stage.
At Camp A Cappella CT, we are committed to meeting the needs of students who are interested in a fun and light hearted experience, as well as those who want to have a more rigorous learning experience. To accommodate different ages and skill levels, we will be dividing the camp into two groups, an upper and lower camp, each with its own repertoire and daily schedule. Both upper and lower campers will have the opportunity to perform in our final concert.
If you already sing in an a cappella group, you are welcome to register as an ensemble. We will coach your group and give the group an opportunity to perform in our final concert.
The 2018 program will run August 13-18 from 10am-3pm daily. Following our morning rehearsals, workshops in the afternoon will include beatboxing, vocal improvisation, solo technique, and arranging. The final day will feature a Saturday evening concert at 5 p.m. for family, friends, and community members, and will include guest performers who will collaborate with the young singers in a spirited program that is not to be missed!
The program is open to all levels of singers ages 9-18 in the fall of 2018. No audition is required.
