Boston Conservatory at Berklee Vocal/Choral Intensive

Boston Conservatory at Berklee Vocal/Choral Intensive is a two-week summer program for high school–aged singers who are focused on musical theater or classical music. Led by Professor Bill Cutter and Chair of Voice Patty Thom, and taught by Conservatory faculty who have years of experience training young singing artists, this is a chance for young performers to explore their abilities as solo performers and to begin to discover the many professional and educational options available to them as they move forward in their artistic lives.

Vocal/Choral Intensive’s curriculum is focused on strengthening students’ foundational and performance skills, through performance classes, Alexander Technique training, repertoire classes, Breathing Bootcamp, theory and sight-singing classes, and a Shakespeare-centered acting project. Each student will receive coachings and voice lessons and experience master classes with Boston Conservatory faculty.

At the conclusion of the program, students can expect to be more complete artists with stronger musicianship skills and more polished performance techniques. They will have a clearer idea of their own artistic and educational goals, and a better sense of the questions to ask. In addition, they will meet talented peers who share their passion for singing and music, and who will help each other become more purposeful and engaging storytellers through song.



"I got more out of these two weeks than anything I've ever done. You have all reminded me why l love music, and how vital music making is to a meaningful existence. You have opened me up in more ways than I thought possible."

Adrianna K. (Former Vocal/Choral Intensive Participant)
