A Cappella Camp Daily Overview and Schedule
Camp A Cappella students will be immersed in the world of contemporary a cappella for the week and will present a performance at the end of the week. The concert will be presented with students using individual handheld microphones to allow maximum flexibility in capturing and presenting their sound.
The Camp Day:
Rehearsal: Will include a combination of activities such as learning music, singing together, listening to/watching a cappella performances, lyric analysis, and mini-workshops on topics like vocal percussion, facial expression, stage presence, solo delivery, movement, mic technique, etc. These rehearsal times will typically last up to one hour.
Rehearsal Breaks: Will include opportunities for bathroom, quick snacks, socialization, music games, and other similar non-rehearsal activities.
Lunch: 12:00-12:30p daily
Camp Concert: in the Little Theater 2:00 pm Friday the 16th. Tickets will be sold at the door.
COVID protocols (if needed):
Singing: Students should wear well-fitting masks that fully cover both nose and mouth securely. No face shields. Students will generally be spaced at 6 feet apart while singing. We will sing in any indoor rehearsal location for a maximum of 30 minutes, and then will leave the space to allow for air exchange. Outside rehearsal areas will be used if possible.
Microphones: Microphones will be sanitized daily, and anytime they need to be shared by more than one student.
Eating: Students will be spaced 6 feet apart while eating lunch, and during any time they eat a snack. Outdoor areas will be used for eating if possible.
