CANCELLED, Launching Summer 2021!


This summer the University of Northwestern is proud to offer a brand new opportunity for young musicians: a vocal performance camp for high school students!

Come join other singers in expanding your vocal performance skills. Voice lessons, master classes, and dramatic coaching with UNW faculty will culminate in an exciting staged performance for each singer on Friday.


All of our faculty are current faculty members of the University of Northwestern and bring years of vocal experience and a strong performance background to the students. 

Schedule — July 13–17, 2020

Monday - Friday

10:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Vocal Performance Recital will be held Friday at the end of the camp week in the Nazareth Great Room. The Recital will be a presentation, by the students, of the repertoire they've been working on and the culmination of their experience during the camp.
