“If you know any young ladies who love to sing or have a talent for singing, tell them about the Austin Girls’ Choir.  They changed my life. Young women are empowered through working together and performances. Summer camps start soon and are a blast!!!” — Elizabeth Hotmann, AGC alumna

Our first camp runs June 5-9, and will be held 9-5 daily in the Parish Hall of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection on Justin Lane.  This program is open to singers age 8-16, beginner to advanced.  Cost is $325 per child for girls not already enrolled in Austin Girls’ Choir.  No audition is required, but a brief placement session will occur at the start of camp so as to include girls in skill-appropriate groups.  The music menu ranges from Adele to light classical!  Instruction includes vocal skills, note reading, basic harmony and fun songs with simple choreography.  Guest artists will do one-hour sessions on various types of singing styles.  Other camp activities will include stage presentation, arts and crafts, and a few surprises!  An end-of-camp concert at 5 p.m. on June 9 lets the girls proudly share their accomplishments with friends and family.  40 places are available and will be filled as registration forms ( AGC CAMP FORMS 2017 ) and payments are received.  And yes, we still have room, and are accepting campers through 9 a.m. Monday 6/5!  No audition is required for girls attending this camp. 

Our second camp, to be held at the same location, runs 9-5 daily June 12-16, and is for highly advanced singers age 10-17.  Cost is $325 per child for girls not already enrolled in Austin Girls’ Choir.  An audition is required for any girl from outside the Choir wishing to participate in this challenging camp; the pace is rapid and expectations of each chorister are high.  This session functions primarily as tour preparation for the group touring June 18-28, so tour music selections will be emphasized.  (We will audition potential new tour participants during camp June 13, after they have had a chance to rehearse the music.)  We will have a few run-out performances during the week, and carpool assistance is warmly welcomed!  Camp ends with a 5:30 p.m. concert on June 16.  We have 15 spaces available to girls not already in the Choir for this session.  Please e-mail us at office@girlschoir.com to make a placement appointment; times are available on weekends in May and on June 3.

Lunch and afternoon snack are provided at both camps!  We welcome girls to audition to join Austin Girls’ Choir on the last day of each camp.  A 20% camp tuition discount is available to groups of 5 or more from any one school.  We look forward to another fun and inspiring pair of sessions!

Please note: we are unable to offer camp scholarships this year beyond the group tuition discount above.

Campamento 5-9 Junio

¿Conoces a una niña que le encanta cantar?  El Coro de niñas de Austin (Austin Girls’ Choir) tiene un campamento general muy divertido el 5-9 de junio para niñas de edades 8-16, ninguna audición requerida.  ¡Es una manera genial para intentar una variedad de estilos y ver cómo es cantar en un equipo!  El coro canta un alcance amplia de música – jazz, Cancionero Americano, pop, música del mundo, números con danza, canciones de músicos de Austin, aun un poco de clásico ligero.  Se añade un poco de coreografía a algunas de las canciones, también.  Las niñas aprenden canciones en 2- a 5-partes de harmonía.  Además, reciben clases (arregladas por edad o nivel de destrezas) en los básicos de leer música y teoría de música, arte, composición musical, presentar en escenario, y mucho más.  Se incluye almuerzo y merienda.  ¡El campamento termina con un concierto público a las 5 p.m. el 9 de junio!  Formas para registrar están disponibles aqui a  AGC CAMPFORMS 2017 – Spanish .
