Glen Ellyn, IL--Anima- Young Singers of Greater Chicago (formerly the Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus) is pleased to announce the creation of a Summer Music Academy, June 17-21, 2013.
Anima’s Summer Music Academy is designed to excite students (entering grades 5th-9th) of all skill levels with enriching vocal music and acting experiences. They can use these skills in their schools, communities, and everyday lives. Vocal techniques, musicianship skills, acting techniques, and opera/musical theater repertoire will be focused on during this one-week Academy.
The Academy will be taught by Anima Artistic Director, Emily Ellsworth, and Glenbard West High School English and Theater teacher, Michael Moran. Classes will be held daily from 9:00am-4:00pm, June 17-21, 2013, at St. Petronille Church in Glen Ellyn. The week will culminate with a free performance for friends and family of opera and musical theater scenes learned throughout the week.
Support for this event is provided in part by grants from the DuPage Community Foundation, Illinois Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Alphawood Foundation, Young Singers Foundation, and Prince Charitable Trusts.
