Participating in the Utopian Arts Summer Vocal program was a rewarding experience. Not only did it offer valuable performance experience in both the choral and solo settings, but it allowed each and every one of its students to blossom and grow in their musical lives. Utopian Arts Summer Vocal program opened up doors for all of its students, giving them all the best gift any child can receive; music.

As I have been taking vocal lessons for four years, a small part of me was worried about how much I would actually learn. Those fears were put to rest on the first day. I picked up a lot of knowledge that I can apply to my lessons and to future auditions and shows. The program was definitely a more classical, bel canto approach to singing, which was perfect for me, as my repertoire consists mainly of opera, art song, and classical/operetta style musical theatre. However, do not let this stop you from going if you sing other styles of music. Anyone can benefit from proper technique training and fresh ears and ideas. From what I have heard from college students and alumni of arts programs, the experience I received at Utopian Arts gave me a taste of what studying at a conservatory would be like. As well as a glimpse of college, I also now have connections with some of the instructors. Networking is very important in the arts, and having experienced and qualified adults that you trust to whom you can go for advice and recommendations is fabulous. I so enjoyed my time at Utopian Arts and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in vocal performance.

Utopian Arts Summer Voice Camp was an incredible experience for me. I learned many things about my voice, singing, acting, and so much more! This week helped me grow as a singer, and also created new friendships with the other students and the faculty. The people running the camp were absolutely wonderful and helped me excel in vocal performance. I recommend this camp whole heartedly to anyone who is interested in becoming a better singer! There were vocalists at all levels, and the faculty helped everyone feel very comfortable when performing. Utopian Arts was one of the best experiences I've ever had for voice and I will definitely be returning next year!
