ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Bay Area Vocal Academy (BAVA) Summer Symposium is for young (advanced middle-schoolers and high schoolers) performers looking to immerse themselves in the art of singing. Artists will learn vocal technique, movement and stagecraft, score preparation/study, repertoire, and some foreign language. Our classically based singing training covers American Art Song, Opera, and Musical Theater. Our expert faculty will lead voice lessons, piano coachings, and seminars on all aspects of preparing a song or scene. There will be a workshop introducing college prep and business skills for singers headed toward a music degree and career in singing. Guest artists will present workshops or lead short field trips in acting, dance, theater history, and more. The singers will show their artistic growth in a staged final showcase performance at the workshop’s end.
