Encore conducted our First Annual (by acclamation) Choral Camp at St. Mary's College of Maryland , June 17-21, 2008. It was a busy five days for the campers! They were barely checked in to their rooms before it was time for the first of eight scheduled choral rehearsals.
Campers were treated to a Southern Barbecue reception and dinner on Tuesday evening, followed by an excellent concert by the West Shore Piano Trio.
After breakfast Wednesday morning, the campers got the "juices flowing" with a lively movement class, conducted by Tiffany Haughn. Campers called the movement class, held each morning at 9:00, one of the highlights of the week. In four sessions, they were introduced to a variety of dance forms, including ballet, modern, jazz, mambo and rumba (with a special demonstration by rumba-dancer extraordinaire, camper Pat Baker).
Despite the intense daytime schedule, campers still had energy for evening events that included Movie Night, a two-piano recital by Hyeweon Lee and Lina Morita, and a Polynesian Buffet followed by a River Concert Series performance by the Chesapeake Orchestra, featuring Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #3, performed by Jon Nakamatsu.
All the week's hard work paid off with a rousing concert before on appreciative audience on Saturday afternoon. At the end of the camp, there were lots of smiles and eager anticipation of next year!
