Children's Choir Camp Opportunity

I am pleased to inform you of an exciting choir camp opportunity for Bluffsview students who are currently in 3rd-6th grade. Capriccio! Vocal Ensemble, a community choir of 80 singers, directed by Mr. Larry Griffin is conducting a FREE children's choir camp in June for students who are interested in joining his new group, Capriccio Kids!

Capriccio Kids! debuted with the Central Ohio Symphony and The Ohio Weselyan Choral Art Society earlier this year. Next fall, Capriccio Kids! will rehearse once a week in two choirs (grades 3-5 and grades 6-8) and perform on two main concerts with Capriccio! Vocal Ensemble (December and June) in addition to a few community performances as they arise.

To kick off the opening season, there will be a summer Capriccio Kids! choir camp for all students interesed in auditioning for the group. The camp will run on Wednesday, June 15th and Thursday, June 16th from 9:00AM to 3:00PM at Bluffsview Elementary School.

The best part is that this two-day choir camp is FREE!!!!!! Students should pack a lunch for each day of camp. There will also be a sharing concert at the close of camp on Thursday at 3:00PM that is open to family and friends.

Please contact Capriccio Kids! director, Alyson Bates, at by Friday, June 10th to reserve a space for your child at camp. Further information will be given upon your reply.

What a great opportunity for our students - FREE, and happening at our own school! I hope many of you sign up for camp and audition to join Capriccio Kids! in the fall.
