Students in the Vocal Music Conservatory study music theory, music history, chamber and solo works, and a variety of musical styles. Students compose, conduct, and participate in works of music through out the school year. The Conservatory is comprised of a select audition-only group of 10th, 11th and 12th grade students. Students perform informally, give recitals and participate in large-scale productions, both as solely the Conservatory and in collaboration with other arts disciplines. Anne Whattoff is the coordinator of the Vocal Music Conservatory as well as the Envision day classes of Choir and Rock Band.
The Senior Recitals in November and December will showcase the achievements made by the senior Vocal Conservatory students in their studies at Canyon Crest Academy. The recitals are open to the public. Tickets are available online: http://www.cca-envision.org/events.html, at the door, or in advance at the ASB Finance window on the CCA campus. Tickets are $5 students/$7 adults.
