Vocal Week 2016 at the Augusta Heritage Center Andrew Carroll June 14, 2016 Singing can connect us to many wonderful cultures and the act of singing is itself one of humanity’s oldest and most powerful traditions. Vocal Week offers a wealth of opportunities to join in. Students will learn songs from a range of traditional cultures and contemporary styles, taught by nationally and internationally known instructors. Taking good care of your voice will also be emphasized, along with classes in voice technique and vocal warm-ups. Unless otherwise noted, Vocal Week classes are open to all levels. Beginners can learn to create simple harmonies, while more experienced singers can get a challenging workout. Take week-long classes during three periods each day, sample single-day “one shot” sessions in the afternoon, and sing in a large group during afternoon cultural sessions in the chapel. You can also enjoy evening song circles, concerts and dances. Tuition paid BEFORE June 1: $450. Tuition paid AFTER June 1: $490.
