The Foster Vocal Camp provides three distinct musical experiences. The Concert Choir performs interesting choral music from each of the historical periods — Renaissance to music of living composers. Campers will sing under Eastern Kentucky University's Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Richard Waters.
Campers have an opportunity to attend a daily voice class with a professional teacher and study voice privately at the rate of $20 per half-hour lesson. Advanced vocalists will be chosen by the faculty to perform for parents, relatives and friends on the Thursday evening choral concert in Brock Auditorium.
Also, advanced vocal campers will have an opportunity to perform in several select madrigal ensembles, drawn from the greater camp Concert Choir. These chamber groups will perform short programs of madrigal music on Friday’s final concert.

Afternoon activities are planned each evening for the campers. Activities include, but are not limited to, tennis, soccer, basketball, swimming, kickball, softball, movies, indoor/outdoor games, board games, video game tournaments, etc. We offer several afternoon activities each evening allowing students to choose their favorites.
