Julian Patrick Summer Vocal camp

                                                        for Gifted High School Students

This year the Julian Patrick Vocal Camp suffered a great loss with the death of founder and director Leslie McEwen.  Leslie was a frequent performer in Wenatchee Valley but made her most personal impact as a meticulous teacher of voice. In 2007 she founded the Julian Patrick Vocal Camp to give promising students a chance to work intensely with a variety of professionals from around the country.

This year, the board and staff press forward with this incredible program in honor of Leslie and her tireless work elevating the art of music in the Wenatchee Valley.

Applying For Vocal Camp

The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center is proud to present the 9th annual Julian Patrick Summer Workshop for Gifted High School Singers. Julian Patrick, noted baritone, passed away in 2009. He had performed worldwide with major opera companies including the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Dallas Opera and Seattle Opera. He was also an experienced vocal educator. This one-week intensive camp, administered by chosen faculty, offers dedicated high school vocal students an opportunity to explore the many facets involved in developing the singer’s art, and helps them prepare for study at the college and professional level.
