Sing in a Dust Devils Game with Mastersingers Youth Choir Camp | Community


TRI-CITIES, Wash. – After more than a year without any youth choir programming, the Mid-Columbia Mastersingers are announcing the 6th annual choir camp in August for youth in the Tri-Cities area.

The choral camp will be held at the Lord of Life Lutheran Church from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. from Tuesday, August 10 to Friday, August 13.

Young singers entering Grades 4-8 are encouraged to register for camp – no audition or singing experience is required. Tuition is $ 50 per person and scholarships are available upon request.

Campers will learn the basics of vocal technique and artistic performance in a choral group. The group will perform at the Tri-City Devils game on the evening of August 13.

This program will be subject to the security measures recommended by the state at the time of the camp. As most participants will be under 12 and therefore unvaccinated, all campers will need to follow safety protocols such as masking and social distancing.

The number of participants has also been limited to a maximum of 25 to ensure that spacing can be achieved, as stated in a statement.

All chanting will take place outdoors and in a shaded area, to ensure maximum safety given the risk of viral transmission as well as summer weather considerations.

The Mastersingers Youth (MY) Choirs summer camp will be led by Adrienne Shields, a music educator from our region. Adrienne is also a programming accompanist for MY Choir as well as administrator and director of several other music programs in the region, including the Mid-Columbia Youth Symphony.

The 2019-2020 Mastersingers Youth Choir season was cut short at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with all MCM activities, including adult and youth choirs.

As soon as the plan to reopen Washington State’s performing arts sector, approved by state agencies on January 13, was released, plans to restart programming began. This camp will be the first activity of the Youth Choir program under these new recommendations.

Registration for the MY Choir summer camp is available at www.MCMastersingers.org.
