OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College is once again offering its Contemporary Voices Summer Music Camp. The camp is open to all high school and above singers (mature and enthusiastic junior high students welcome) who want to immerse themselves in a five-day musical journey that fosters growth and inspiration.

The camp runs daily July 15 through July 19, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with optional recording/songwriting sessions 6-9 p.m. The camp is directed by Dr. Kathleen Hollingsworth, CCC's director of vocal music. There will be daily classes in:

  • Vocal technique
  • Songwriting
  • Recording
  • Choir rehearsals
  • Circle singing
  • A cappella
  • Functional theory

Campers will learn new choral, vocal jazz and gospel works; collaboratively compose new music in a circle singing group; have an opportunity to sing solos in the songwriting class and also in choir rehearsals; learn and understand music theory; hear guest musicians play and talk about music; and make new friends.

The campus will be held in the Niemeyer Center on the CCC Oregon City Campus, 19600 Molalla Ave. Cost is $150, plus an additional $50 for optional evening recording session.
