Musical Theatre Intensive

MSVMA will welcome 100 singers in grades 9-12 to our Musical Theatre Intensive on Saturday, October 5 at Portage Central High School. We are delighted to have an incredible panel of clinicians from the faculty of the University of Michigan Musical Theatre Department including Catherine A. Walker. 

Students will have the opportunity to sing for clinicians and participate in a variety of topic sessions. 


MSVMA welcomes high school students to participate in its Musical Theatre Solo and Ensemble Festivals. Participants must be enrolled and in good standing in their school's vocal music program. Their school must be a member of MSVMA.
