Ensemble Boot Camp

GALA ensembles, here is your chance to devote an entire weekend to honing your vocal and ensemble skills! Six ensembles will have the opportunity to work with clinician-extraordinaire, Michael Hayden, in private workshop settings as master classes with all of the ensembles.

Ensembles will perform for each other and for other singing delegates at the very gay Parliament House on Sunday morning. The schedule is designed so that ensemble singers can also sing with the SSAA or TTBB Symposium Singers.

The GALA Ensemble Boot Camp is open to the first six ensembles that register! Note that special registration discounts are available for ensembles bringing at least four singers. To register your ensemble, send an email to

Michael Hayden is choral director at Mira Costa High School in California and has worked extensively with choirs and ensembles across North America as a choral clinician and ensemble coach.

"If you sing with Michael Hayden, expect to be amazed, challenged, energized and to learn things about your voice that you never knew was possible!"
