The Madeleine Summer Experience 2018

 

Summer is only four months away and we are in full swing of planning our summer camps. As in the last few years, the Choir School will be offering two weeks of camps - Experience Opera Camp and Camp Expedition. 

 

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. It will take place on The Madeleine Choir School campus and the Utah Opera Production Studios giving campers the unique experience of preparing an opera right in the Utah Opera shops and rehearsal facilities. 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. The camp will be offered from Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20, with a performance of our newest opera on Friday, July 20 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 $300. 

 

In addition to Opera Camp we are excited to offer 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 23 through July 26. We have 25 spots available for this camp, and cost is $200. 

 

Registration for all camps will open on March 1! 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 summer@utmcs.org.
