Shoreline's music program is the right choice for talented singers graduating from high school or vocalists looking for performing experience and college credit courses. You will find a wide variety of vocal performance opportunities in Shoreline Community College's vocal program - from solo recital, opera and musical theater, to choral ensembles.

 

We offer a challenging, yet nurturing environment, providing you with the skills and confidence necessary to survive in an increasingly competitive musical world of auditions and performance opportunities. The training you receive at Shoreline will give you a broad and versatile background, preparing you for more advanced studies when you graduate.

 

Choral/Vocal Ensembles

Shoreline Community College has two first-rate choirs; the Chamber Chorale, and the more selective Shoreline Singers. Choral Director, Dr. Fred Lokken, schedules auditions at the beginning of Fall Quarter. Get more information about Choral/Vocal Ensembles.

 

Opera and Musical Theatre

No other community college in Washington State offers an opera workshop program featuring fully staged one-act operas and opera scenes each winter, as well as a fully staged musical each spring. Both operas and musicals are performed with orchestra. Dr. Charles Enlow produces and directs both of these productions. Get more information about participating in the Opera Workshop or Musical Theatre.

 

Other Vocal Performance Opportunities

Additional performance opportunities are provided to private voice students who participate in performance classes, recitals, and master classes given throughout the year. Students also attend special forums given by faculty and special guests. At the end of each quarter, students perform juries exactly as they would in four-year music programs. These juries are an exciting occasion for students to showcase their progress before faculty and fellow students.

 

If you are interested in more popular or folk genres, Shoreline also offers non-traditional Bluegrass and Funk & Groove ensembles.

 

Vocal Program Courses

We are proud to offer a broad range of vocal courses for our students. Class sizes are small--allowing our students to receive more individualized training and assistance. Shoreline Community College is less expensive than a four-year college or conservatory, and most credits are transferable.
