About the Choral Academy

The Virginia Consort Choral Academy offers a unique experience for high school age students to study and explore the possibilities of professional music.

Through this week-long camp, students have the opportunity to learn from a professional artistic staff and to perform a choral masterpiece with soloists and orchestra under the direction of Judith Gary.

Our Artistic Staff, comprised of talented local choral directors, is dedicated to creating the most exciting and Close-up of two singers rehearsingenriching educational experience possible to help students more fully understand music theory, vocal production, music history and conducting technique, with classes in Alexander Technique for Singers, Sight Reading, and  Preparing for an Audition.
