After its huge success last year, we will be bringing the Prep Program back this Summer. The Prep Program is geared towards young singers with aspirations of attending Conservatory, College, University, or Young Artist Training Programs.
The UBC Summer Prep program prepares students for auditions and introduces tools to help them succeed at a University and Young Artist music program. This program is ideal for students applying to music programs or those who have recently been accepted to music school looking to take their audition packages to the next level at Young Artist Training Programs.
The Prep Program is an additional program with an additional fee and will run alongside the regularly scheduled camp. The Prep Program is auditioned based and there are limited spots available this year.
