Students who just completed the 9th through 12th grades are invited to register now for the Mansfield University Choral Academy, the summer high school choral music camp being held on the university campus Sunday, July 16 through Saturday, July 22.

Those who register for the MU Choral Academy will have the opportunity to sing with the Endless Mountain Music Festival's 62-member professional symphony orchestra and members of the Mansfield University Concert Choir and Festival Chorus. At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 21, they will present arrangements by Mack Wilberg, including "Saints Bound for Heaven," "Shenandoah," and "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling" in Steadman Theater on campus.

The Academy's final concert on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. will include the Choral Academy Chorus, Madrigal Singers, Vocal Jazz Ensemble singing Handel's "Hallelujah, Amen," the Paulus arrangement of the folk tune"The Water is Wide," Bennett's "Weep O Mine Eyes," Duke's "Taking a Chance on Love" and Twine's arrangement of the spiritual "Sit Down Servant." The Musical Theatre ensemble will perform a scene from a Broadway musical.

Mansfield University is considered one of the premier music schools in the East. Providing musical leadership for the Choral Academy are MU master teachers Peggy Dettwiler, Choral Activities director who conducts the university’s Concert Choir, Festival Chorus and Chamber Singers; Dr. Todd Ranney, professor of voice and director of musical theatre; and Dr. Alissa Rose, professor of voice.

The Choral Academy is for voice students. The seven-day camp will be in the Butler Music Center.
