The Vocal Arts Institute (VAI) is an exclusive summer intensive designed to comprehensively teach young singers (grade 9-12) about the vocal arts. During the program, twenty-five gifted high school students immerse themselves in voice lessons, masterclasses, cross-genre training, mock auditions, movement, and information sessions on topics ranging from diction to vocal anatomy.

VAI covers classical, choral, musical theater, a cappella, and jazz singing. Students also learn about vocal arts professions, from arts administration to full-time performance. By the end of the program, students have a better understanding of how to sing and how the vocal arts will fit into their lives.

VAI includes three performances: a community outreach concert, an individual showcase, and a final side-by-side ensemble concert that is also a featured event during the Three Rivers Festival.

Details on the 2019 Vocal Arts Institute will be available in the near future.

Application coming soon!
