What You'll Get
The act of singing can cheer up a crowd, win over a love interest, or make a peaceful pachyderm feel significantly more like stampeding. Help a youngster learn how to sing sweetly with today's Groupon: for $125, a student between grades 5 and 12 gets to attend a one-week vocal-music -performance summer camp held from Monday, July 11, to Saturday, July 16, at Federal Way Symphony (a $250 value). Classes run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with a showcase performance on Saturday morning. Participants must have at least one year of music experience to be eligible for the camp.
Helmed by dulcet-toned Pamela Casella, the instructors at the vocal-music-performance summer camp mold fledgling songbirds into tuneful troubadours with one week of training focused on technique and performance skills. Within the pitch-perfect walls of the Federal Way High School choir room, groups of talented juvenescents explore a wide variety of vocal styles during classes, workshops, and one-on-one lessons under the wings and prosthetic beaks of experienced instructors. Parents can guide hands through the age-old routine of clapping, videotaping, and oscillating like a fan during the Saturday-morning showcase performance, where warbling whippersnappers reveal their newly polished pipes through an ebullient recital of madrigals.
