This camp will feature four solid days of learning for these future All-Region or even All-State singers! Students will participate in sectionals and full choir rehearsals during the day time in order to learn the music in preparation for their All-State Auditions beginning in September. Because this is not a University camp, you are not wasting money on dorm fees and college meal plans! Students don't need to travel long distances or stay for a week somewhere strange, simply come in the morning and go home in the afternoon!
All of the Section Leaders for C4 are Texas High School Choir Directors who have tons of experience and success leading students through the All-State process. Because this is not a large University camp, every student will receive special attention from our Section Leaders, Conductors and Camp Directors!
As part of the tuition for C4 all students will receive a Large School Audition music packet to keep and take home after camp has ended. This allows the students to get their music before nearly anyone else attending other camps in order to begin preparing!
As part of the tuition for C4 we will provide lunch each day for the students. They will enjoy quality time with other campers and counselors.
Unlike many other All-State Camps, this camp will feature a set of mock auditions where students will win prizes and get the opportunity to improve their audition skills by practicing the process and receiving valuable feedback.
C4 will offer a talent competition where students may enter to compete for cash prizes. Parents will be able to come watch this performance and see their students show off their special talents for everyone!
Tuition for C4 is only $120 per student. This fee covers all fees, meals, music, t-shirt, clinicians, and much more! When compared to large university camps this is a STEAL!
Payments may be made online using any major credit card. Payment plans can be customized on the website, and as always, checks and cash are accepted in person at final registration.
