COLORADO A CAPPELLA
The SUMMER VOCAL EXPERIENCE
Face Vocal Band is so excited to have you with us for our 2021 A cappella Summer Camp! It will be a very exclusive group this year, and we can’t wait to see our campers for this very special summer camp.
During the camp experience, participants will:
- Create, rehearse, and perform fun, modern, cutting-edge arrangements within a “vocal band” (a cappella group) setting.
- Learn how to work with others while maintaining social distance to create a full sound using only our voices.
- Learn the basics of improvising, writing and arranging a cappella music.
- Learn the elements needed to record a dynamic virtual performance.
- Learn how to record and submit a video and voice recording for a final showcase to be presented with international a cappella artists, Face Vocal Band, during a live-stream concert!
