The 18th annual Dana School of Music Vocal Performance Clinic is July 27 through Aug. 1, at Youngstown State University.

The clinic is an award-winning program that offers gifted performers an opportunity to develop their performance abilities and gain further knowledge in their pursuit of singing.

“In addition to extensive performing opportunities, students will learn the skills necessary to become effective musicians,” said Misook Yun, professor in the Dana School of Music and clinic coordinator. “Students will receive personal vocal instruction, acting lessons, and dancing & movement classes.”

Daily activities include warm-up techniques, vocal literature, foreign language diction, acting principles, music theory and history, stage presence and movement, vocal instruction and master classes.

The faculty of the program consists of professors from the YSU Dana School of Music and advanced voice students. Guest artists include professional experts in the field of vocal health, choral conducting, gospel styles, dance and acting.

The clinic is open to all singers who will be in high school during the 2015-2016 school year, as well as incoming YSU voice majors.

Sessions will primarily be held in Bliss Hall on the YSU campus.

Tuition is $220 if paid by June 26; or $240 after June 28. For participants needing housing, on-campus room and board is an additional $250, based on double occupancy.
