SAVA Singers is a choral and performance workshop.  You will study ensemble singing by working with a group.  Learn harmony skills for vocal concerts, musical theatre, and recording jobs.

It’s always a fun class, with the added benefit of including these performances on your resume. Music will be provided and many singing styles will be covered including theater, jazz, rock, pop, classical (particularly in the spring).

The Spring Term includes a performance in a major New York venue such as Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center.

The Fall Term ends in a benefit holiday performance.

“What a great joy it was to work with you toward our
performance in Carnegie Hall. Super job!”
