Arrowbear Music Camp Choral Sessions


For singers entering 9th grade through college. An intense 10 days of musical preparation including instruction in vocal production, music theory and performance practice, contemporary a cappella, and vocal jazz. Instructors work carefully with social staff to balance rehearsals and classes with social activities.


Students receive excellent instruction in choral technique, vocal production, music theory, and musical artistry. The music staff is made up of professional performers and educators who work carefully with the camp social staff in order to balance the musical end of things with traditional activities such as campfire, hiking, swimming, volleyball, arts and crafts, etc.
Our conducting staff includes some of the best choral education talent in Southern California.
