The Pioneer All-State Choir Camp prepares Texas high school singers from large and small schools for a successful all-state audition process. Our goal is to teach vocal technique and musical interpretation in conjunction with the all-state repertoire. We also provide private voice lessons and breakout sessions designed to match individual needs and interests. 

Highlights

  • Large and small school tracks available.
  • Late summer date to keep the music fresh before the school year begins.
  • Individual vocal consultations by university faculty.
  • Breakout sessions on subjects from theory to musical theatre.
  • 2018 all-state singer discount.
