CAMP DETAILS

Welcome! In our 24th year, the UTSA Choir Camp continues to be a leader in the Texas All-State Choir preparatory process. Because of the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are not allowed to host an in-person camp this summer. We are, however, excited for you to join our virtual program! While this version of our camp may be different than in previous years, we are resolved as a team to continue to provide the best possible experience to our campers. We are dedicated to being the best and most valuable resource to learn your All-State music. Our camp features outstanding clinicians from prominent Texas high school music programs along with UTSA’s own superb conductors and faculty to provide an intensive and advanced study of the All-State audition music. All high school students and entering high schools students planning to participate in the All-State process are welcome to register.

We are unable to provide music to campers this year. Please plan to purchase the All-State music packet on your own. We apologize for the inconvenience.

To visit the JW Pepper website to purchase your music packet, click here. If your student is singing as a Soprano or Alto, choose the Large School Treble Packet. If you student is singing as a Tenor or a Bass, choose the Large School Tenor Bass Packet.

If it is likely that your music is not going to arrive in time for camp, email us at choircamp@utsa.edu. Please include a receipt or proof of purchase indicating that you have purchased your music.
