For the first time this year, we are introducing a new two-track program available for all students. After the success of our Prep Program in the past, we want to make its benefits available to all applicants. Starting this year, we offer two tracks of the program based on performing experience. Our aim is to make sure that the UBC Summer Vocal Workshop is open and available to singers of all levels and abilities, and this new two-track system will be a great way to showcase all students and help improve their skill no matter where they are in their artistic development. Placement in each track level is determined by the Director of the Summer Vocal Workshop and will be based on your audition video.

Track 1

Students enrolled in Track 1 will receive all of the components included in tuition, and will be assigned a role in a scene in English from musical theatre or operatic repertoire. They will learn the basics of diction and IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), develop stage presence skills, and meet other singers their experience level so that they can grow their artistry and confidence and make new friends.

Track 2

Students enrolled in Track 2 will receive all of the components included in tuition, and will be assigned a role in a scene in English or a foreign language from musical theatre or operatic repertoire. They will learn advanced diction and IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), develop stage presence skills, and meet other singers their experience level so that they can grow their artistry and confidence and make new friends.

All Singers

All students accepted into the UBC Summer Vocal Workshop will perform on the Final Concert, take part in our mock auditions, and will be provided with mentorship and advising for their future in music.

Housing

Students will either be Overnight campers, or Day campers. For those students needing housing (Overnight campers) during the Summer Vocal Workshop, we are happy to be able to provide a University dorm room at Place Vanier for the duration of the Workshop. The dorms are located a short 5-minute walk from the School of Music, and all students are accompanied by UBC counsellors and chaperones at all times. The counsellors and chaperones will also stay at the dorms with students, and are on call for the needs of the students. Day campers will attend the Workshop from 9am-5pm each day.

Food

Overnight campers will be provided breakfasts and dinners at the dormitory cafeteria each day of the Workshop. All lunches are provided for all students (both Overnight and Day campers) and will be held at the School of Music. Lunch is served every full day of the Workshop (this does not include July 7 as we will begin at 1pm for orientation). If you are a Day camper and would like to stay for occasional evening activities, please bring $15 cash for those days you will be able to eat with the overnight campers. Please indicate any dietary needs or restrictions on your application, keeping in mind we cannot accommodate every need but we will do our very best to make your stay at UBC as comfortable as possible. We will have one day off during the course of the camp (Saturday, July 13, 2019) when overnight campers will still have the option of food from the Cafeteria.
