The National Children’s Chorus announces the launch of Summer Camp 2021: A Broadway & Jazz Intensive. This two-week program will feature a custom-designed curriculum focused on these favorite genres in singing, while sharpening musicianship skills, building repertoire knowledge of Broadway and jazz, getting in touch with our bodies as vehicles for expression, and building bonds of friendships across the country. Led by Artistic Director Luke McEndarfer and Associate Artistic Director Dr. Pamela Blackstone, students will also present a final concert featuring an array of virtual choir music videos, and solo performances by select students. We are so extremely thrilled to get to enjoy Broadway and jazz in this dedicated summer program! Students will surely emerge musically stronger, creatively inspired, and artistically gratified, with an enhanced appreciation for this heartfelt and soulful music.

Please click “Book Audition” to submit your application for the summer program. You will then be contacted by our office to schedule a short vocal assessment with a member of our artistic team. Final registration must be received by July 9th. *Current NCC members, please contact to receive registration information.
