Let me just say, as a first year Camp Maor staff member I am completely blown away by the talent that surrounds me every day. As this year’s voice instructor, I have been working with our Voice Majors on our upcoming Festival of the Arts performance. Our girls have been diligently preparing four songs ranging from folk and showtunes in the Miriam/ Esther bunks to Broadway ballads and Big Band Jazz in the Rivka 7/ Rivka 8,9 bunks.
We begin each class with a variety of vocal warm-ups and breathing exercises. We continue our rehearsal practicing our harmonies, working on dynamics and individual solo work, and close with a tip for a vocal technique. Our sessions are always filled with laughter, fun, and of course, beautiful music from these talented young ladies.
When we are not working on trills, triplets, and 2-part harmonies, we have been tapping into our inner love for fitness with POUND classes. POUND is a rockout workout that utilizes weighted drumsticks in a choreographed fitness routine. The girls have been having a blast letting loose and feeling like rockstars. It has also been a great way for me to get to know the campers from majors other than voice.
I am looking forward to our upcoming performance, and of course, continuing to make music with them!
