This session, students will present Vocal Academy: The Era's Tour.  Additionally, students will create a professionally recorded and filmed music video to one of the songs!  Each week, students will work on proper vocal technique and practice harmonization in a variety of musical numbers. This session will focus on large group and small group numbers in which different soloists will be featured.  All will receive a solo part. Students in grades 4th-12th who are new to Vocal Academy should prepare an audition video of any non-musical theatre song showing their vocal abilities and stage presence to be submitted no later than March 1st. K-3rd grade students new to Vocal Academy should expect to sing Happy Birthday a cappella and/or do some individual vocal warm ups with the instructor on the first day of class.  These "auditions" are simply to give instructors an introduction to your voice and stage presence.  All students will participate in a final concert at the end of the session for family and friends!
