Welcome to Broadway Kids! This session, students will focus on Broadway musicals. Additionally, students will create a professionally recorded and filmed music video of the song Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana from Broadway's production of A Christmas Story! Each week, students will work on proper vocal technique and practice harmonization in a variety of old and new musical numbers. Large group and small ensembles will be cast based on age/ability. Students will all receive solos within group/ensemble numbers. Select students may also receive individual solos and/or duets. Students in grades 4-12 should prepare an audition video of any song showing their vocal abilities and stage presence to be submitted no later than September 9. K-3rd grade students should expect to sing Happy Birthday a cappella and/or do some individual vocal warm ups with the instructor on the first day of class. All students will participate in a final concert at the end of the session for family and friends!
