MANCAMP and Wyoming Women of Song vocal festival participants will perform a free finale concert at the University of Wyoming Saturday, Oct. 27, at 2 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.
The concert will feature the UW Singing Statesmen, the Happy Jacks, Bel Canto and the festival participants. The music festival is designed to enhance the skills and techniques of young singers.
The UW Singing Statesmen and Bel Canto Women’s Chorus will host 75 students from area elementary schools, middle schools and high schools for MANCAMP and Wyoming Women of Song. Students will participate in workshops that focus on areas such as vocal technique and sound production, musicianship skills and performance techniques. Additionally, they will take part in mentorship and team-building activities with members of the collegiate choirs.
MANCAMP is designed to improve the skills and confidence of young male singers in grades 4-12. The UW Singing Statesmen, the Happy Jacks and Nicole Lamartine, a UW associate professor of music and director of choral activities, will explore singing techniques with the participants while they rehearse together for the final performance. Friday evening will wrap up with a “campfire” that will include guest speakers, skits and singing.
Bel Canto and Holly Dalrymple, a UW assistant professor of music, will host Wyoming Women of Song for girls in grades 7-12. Students will learn about choral techniques by rehearsing repertoire with Bel Canto, examine leadership styles and participate in activities designed to build confidence and a healthy concept of self.
The festivals focus on mentorship of younger singers by the collegiate singers, leadership and musical skill.
