High School Voice Day

Friday, October 20, 2023

9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.


This all-day event will feature a campus and music building tour led by GVSU voice students, masterclasses with GVSU voice faculty, a performance featuring our current students, a pizza lunch provided by GVSU, a choral side-by-side rehearsal, and a vocal health seminar.  This experience will provide a valuable glimpse into life as a music student at GVSU.  In addition, we have planned a special Teaching Resource Hour at the beginning of the day for teachers only.  Parents are welcome to observe all the events of the day.  Please register using the following link: gvsu.edu/mtd/voiceday. Participation will be determined on a first-come-first-serve basis. If a student is interested in performing on a masterclass, please fill out Part B of the registration form which includes a recommendation from a private or music classroom teacher. Participants (and performers) will be confirmed via e-mail.  Please contact Kathryn Stieler at [email protected] with any questions.  We look forward to sharing the day with you!
