- Audition Link: https://tinyurl.com/TSCC2021Audition - Please complete this form by April 28th, 2021 in order to be considered for an in person camp spot.

- Invitation: Students will begin to be invited on May 1st. Invited students will receive a link to register and pay their tuition through the TXST website. Alternates will be notified if a seat opens up.

- Virtual camp: Every rehearsal and sectional will be streamed via zoom. Students will be able to hear their section leader, the accompanist, and all the in person singers in real time due to omni directional microphones. Virtual students will be muted, but may ask questions via chat and a counselor will facilitate the answers from your section leader or conductor.

- Virtual camp registration: Opens June 1st and ends July 10th for those wishing to purchase a music packet through the camp. The registration link will be available on the TXST choir camp website, and it will be sent out statewide to our email list.

- Choir Directors: may also sign up for the virtual camp. If at least 5 of your students join the camp, you will receive the zoom codes for free.

- Purpose: The main focus of this camp is to move quickly and accurately through the pitches and rhythms of the pieces so that we can have plenty of opportunity to explore the nuances of musicality, vocal production, and performance practices of each piece thoroughly. It is our hope that with a smaller select choir, we are able to accomplish more in the rehearsals at an exponential rate while allowing viewers at home the benefits of hearing their part taught and modeled artistically. It is our goal that this four day camp would be equal to 8 weeks of after-school instruction thus giving the campers that much more of an advantage in the upcoming 2021-2022 TMEA All-State Competition.
