Choristers who are not planning to participate in the All-State process are also welcome to join for a fun few days of singing and making friends.

At check-in, campers will receive a designated check-out time. During their designated time, campers will wait in their dorm room for a counselor to arrive to begin the check-out process. Baggage should be packed the night before to ensure a fast check-out. At their check-out time, all luggage must be packed, and rooms completely cleared of the campers’ belongings. The counselor will make sure the room is clear, have the camper sign a document acknowledging that the room has been cleared, and then tag the camper’s luggage with their corresponding luggage number (which they will receive at check-in). Once their luggage has been tagged and their key has been turned into their counselor, the camper will take their luggage downstairs to a secure holding room. Staff will be on hand to show campers where to store their luggage. Once the camper has checked out, they will not be able to enter their dorm room again.
Baggage will be stored in order by number at Alvarez Hall for easy retrieval after camp is over.
The culmination of Choir Camp ends with the last General Session/Concert in the Recital Hall on Wednesday, June 26 from 3:30 – 5 p.m. If parents or friends plan to attend the session, please park in the Bauerle Parking Garage or Ximenes Parking Garage. Arrive early to pay for parking at the garage at an hourly rate of $2.00/hr. Without a prepaid parking permit, surface lot parking is unavailable this year due to construction. Parking in a surface lot without a permit will result in a fine from UTSA Police.
Another alternative is offered this year for your convenience: a prepaid parking pass.
By adding $6.00 to your camp tuition, you can purchase a prepaid parking pass and pick it up at check-in on Sunday, June 23. Note: parking in 24-hour Reserve spaces will result in a ticket from campus police. The pass will allow you to park in a surface lot and valid for the whole day, however, it does not guarantee availability of a close parking space, as summer classes are in session and UTSA students will also be using the parking lots. Plan to arrive 45 minutes early to find parking and walk up to the Recital Hall.
At the discretion of the conductor, the repertoire will be performed in a concert-like format. Parents, family, and friends are invited to attend this session. Immediately following the final General Session, campers will be released to walk back to Alvarez Hall by pod. Campers must walk with their designated counselor. Once at the dorm, campers will give counselors their luggage number, and a counselor will retrieve the luggage for the camper. Once the camper has all their luggage, they are free to depart from camp. Any items left behind will be held in the Music Office (210-458-4354) for two weeks, and thereafter donated. Campers who need to depart earlier than 5 p.m. must submit their request in writing before the start of camp. No exceptions. In the letter, please clearly state the time of departure and the person with whom the camper will be leaving.
Lessons will be scheduled with a teacher based on availability and on a first come, first serve basis. The lesson will take place during morning or afternoon rehearsal block. No lessons are scheduled outside of the 8:00am-6:00pm class day.
*Lessons will be offered by UTSA Music distinguished alumni, Ariana Reyna and Taylor Vollmer. Both instructors teach private voice in the San Antonio area and have had numerous students make the All-State Choir.
