The Choir School will be in the final stages of the renovation of Erbin Hall during the upcoming summer months. Due to this extensive construction project, the Choir School is unable to host a full roster of Summer Day Camps this coming summer. However, Utah Opera has once again generously offered to donate space at the Production Studios on 400 W, which will allow us to hold our popular one-week long Experience Opera Camp. The camp will be offered from Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15, with a performance of our newest opera on Friday, July 15 at 3:30pm. The camp is a full-day camp for students entering Grades 4 through 8, and will run from 9:00am to 4:00pm every day of the week. We have 30 spots available for this camp, and cost is $220. Unfortunately all 30 spots for Camp Experience Opera have been filled at this point. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your child on the wait list.
The Experience Opera Camp is presented in conjunction with Utah Opera's "Music! Words! Opera!" teacher development course and will leave your child with priceless memories and an enthusiastic appreciation for opera. Within the span of one week, campers will pick a story, write a libretto, compose all of the music to their chosen opera story, create a set, assemble costumes, learn their parts, and finally, give a world premier performance of their newly composed opera. It is a week filled with imagination, art, and creativity at its highest level! Please read this article in the Deseret News to get a better picture of what we do at Experience Opera Camp.
In addition to Opera Camp we are excited to bring back our popular Camp Expedition. This fun and action-filled full-day camp is for incoming 1st through 4th graders who love to explore what our beautiful valley has to offer. Join us on our daily expeditions to places like the Clark Planetarium, Red Butte Gardens, Antelope Island, and the Hill Aerospace Museum. The camp will meet from July 25 through July 28. We have 25 spots available for this camp, and cost is $200.
Registration for all camps is now open! Simply visit each camp's individual page to register. For any questions, please contact us either via phone at 801.323.9850 or via email at email@example.com.
