Below is a description of Jonathans Summer Choir Program:
Hey guys! My name is Jonathan Campos and how would you like to join a summer camp that focuses just on music! How cool is that? Very cool! ESOMA is proud to bring back the choir summer camp here and I can not wait to work with all you. It will be a 4-6 week session that will cover basic vocal skills, how the voice works, fundamental theory, and performing a wide variety of music. I guarantee that joining this camp will result your singers in becoming more independent, increase in social skills, making new friends, and becoming more confident in not just music, but in their everyday life.
Through music, all things are possible! Learning cooperation through teambuilding, engaging in a higher music standard and enjoying being an important part of the choir family helps singers develop their artistic talent and understand their place in the wide world. Join the summer choir camp and I will be looking forward to hearing your beautiful voice!
