The Central Coast Conservatorium (CCC) Vocal Department brings together an exceptional group of Vocal Teachers to deliver an exciting performance program for the students.
The CCC Vocal Department presents four concerts each year, one each term. The concerts encompass different genres and include Songs of Stage and Screen, Musical Theatre Cabaret, Classical Concert and End of Year Contemporary Concert. Our concerts are performed in different venues (Robert Knox Hall, Youth Arts Warehouse, Greenway Chapel, Gosford Sailing Club) to give students a complete experience singing each genre in the appropriate performance space.
In addition to offering this diverse performance platform for the students the Vocal Department teaching cycle follows a 9 plus 1 model. That is, Vocal Teachers deliver 9 one to one lessons, and one individual performance masterclass experience for each singer called Concert Practice. Concert Practice usually takes place in the Robert Knox hall with our world class official accompanists and it allows the students to gain valuable performance experience and performance coaching from their teacher in a relaxed, welcoming environment.
In addition to our Performance Program, the Vocal Department offers Masterclass' with renowned vocal experts.
The Vocal Department encourages students to participate in ensembles such as Central Coast Philharmonia Choir and Central Coast Opera productions both affiliated with the Central Coast Conservatorium.
