Dear NCSY Camp Maor Families,
WOW, what an incredible week it’s been! Camp is literally as busy as busy can be, rehearsing for our final performance that we know will impress and amaze you!
As Musical Director, I create songs and arrangements that embody what NCSY Camp Maor is about and what our summer theme is, a special song from the play the girls will be performing for you and a song based on a tefillah.
In just the first week of camp, these girls have already mastered 2 songs! Some girls came to camp with a passion for singing, looking to further hone their techniques and delivery while others never even knew they COULD sing…but they certainly do now! They have already learned to use their own beautiful voices, to work together as a team and to create true performance art that is just dazzling and inspiring. These superstars also recorded a song and learned about the recording process itself. Both live and in-studio, the girls have learned about posture and stance, breath support, projection, enunciation and diction, phrasing, rhythm, inflections, music stylization techniques, stage presence and delivery…They learned how to harmonize and recorded multiple harmony tracks like seasoned pro’s!
Yesterday, the girls performed an unforgettable show at Camp HASC…This a particularly favorite highlight of mine each year, as performing for these campers brings them such joy. That joy is totally contagious…by giving, we all receive a tremendous return…and this year was the best yet! The girls performed 2 songs and beamed with happiness and accomplishment as they realized they DID IT!!! But it didn’t end there…we kept the party going with an interactive dance party! What a great day!!
NCSY Camp Maor is about giving girls professional caliber instruction in the performing arts, in a safe, Orthodox and incredibly fun environment. We are striving to make this summer the Best. Summer. Ever….and from the happy smiles I see each and every day, and the way they are singing so well individually and as a team…we are well on our way to doing just that!
