Program Description & Faculty

"This program was living the dream!"

The Vocal Performance Program in Music and Performing Arts Professions offers a three-week intensive workshop during which students explore the techniques of music theatre performance from the perspective of an actor, singer, and dancer. The workshop consists of group and individual instruction. Activities include acting, song analysis and dance classes, choreography and musical staging rehearsals, private voice lessons and coachings, as well as a series of master classes on auditioning, utilizing technology, vocal function and a panel discussion with alumni artists currently working in the field. The workshop culminates with a showcase presentation in which students perform the material they have been working on in class.
