Mixed Choirs & Vocal Chamber Music

Based on the student’s preferences, every Hamp's Camper will participate in two different large ensembles, a chamber ensemble, and the Hamp’s Camp Ensemble. Each of these ensembles will be coached by our faculty and staff members. These ensembles can be from multiple concentrations — for example, a student could choose to perform in concert band, jazz ensemble, and an a cappella group — and our schedule is setup to accommodate a student with a variety of interests. If a pre-formed chamber ensemble plans to attend, please contact us via email about receiving a discount on camp tuition.


Members of the Lionel Hampton Music Camp’s voice program will have the opportunity to work with faculty members at the beautiful campus of University of Idaho to develop their musicianship skills, vocal technique and musical knowledge. Each camper will engage in fun, energized and intensive daily rehearsals of a variety of choral repertoire, culminating in concert performances Saturday.

The voice faculty at the University of Idaho will be directing the vocal ensembles, including Paul Thompson, Chris Pfund and Pamela Bathurst.
