Kent's Rainier Youth Choirs announces Summer Choir Camp
April 2, 2012 · 11:24 AM
Kids entering fourth through eighth grades in the fall are invited to attend Rainier Youth Choirs' first Summer Choir Camp Aug. 20-23.
Campers participate in educational clinics, fun activities and group rehearsals between 9 a.m. and noon each day at Kent United Methodist Church on East Hill, 11010 SE 248th St.
On the last day, Aug. 23, campers stay later to perform a concert and enjoy dinner with their families.
The $25 camp fee includes all clinic materials, a camp T-shirt and a dinner for each camper and two guests. Daily lunches are also available for a nominal fee.
John Rutter's masterwork, "Mass of the Children", performed by Rainier Chorale, Rainier Youth Choirs, soloists Catherine Haight and Elijah Blaisdell and the orchestra elicited a standing ovation from a packed house at Bellevue First Presbyterian Church on March 24.
The concert also featured a solo, Vaga Luna ("Lovely Moon"), sung by longtime RYC member Zack Martin, a senior at Jefferson High School, who recently won the Valley Music Region Solo Contest's Baritone category.
Young singers in grades four through college can audition throughout the year to join the choral training organization. RYC auditions are informal and low key and are now being held for April enrollment.
