Voice Day

January 14, 2023

In this inaugural event for emerging vocalists, WVU Voice Day presents the opportunity to experience voice related activities directed by current voice faculty for a day on campus. Interested students between the ages of 14 and 18 are encouraged to register with an invested companion, a parent, guardian or music teacher. 

Interactions with current students provide information about their journeys to becoming aspiring musicians and offer performances demonstrating numerous musical styles. Current faculty meet with adult companions to guide them in the best ways to support their aspiring musicians as they navigate high school and college level music study. Activities with faculty include a session for centering the body based in the study of Tai Chi, interactive theater games, and a masterclass with opportunities to participate or observe for student participants. 

Students are encouraged to stay for an audition for either feedback or consideration for admission into the WVU School of Music. An optional campus tour is also offered at the end of the day to maximize your WVU visit.  Lunch is provided.

$25 for each student (one additional adult may accompany free of charge) must be paid on-site on January 14.
