WHAT IS REMIX?

ReMix is a one-of-a-kind vocal camp designed to teach and inspire talented singers to further reach their potential in contemporary vocal music. Using the medium of a cappela, ReMix offers classes and performance opportunities to create a true and complete music experience for camp participants.

 

 

What can I expect to learn at ReMix?

The ReMix experience will help singers learn and develop crucial skills in music and performance. Classes on vocal technique, vocal arranging, stage presence, auditioning, beatboxing, vocal blend, and more will be taught by some of the a cappella industry's most talented experts. And not only will there be classes, but each participant will also learn various numbers to perform in the Vocal ReMix Virtual Concert at the end of the week.

When and where will ReMix be held?

ReMix Online will be held July 13-17 with a virtual concert presented on July 31. Workshops, classes, and breakout sessions will be presented virtually by professionals from across the USA.

 

 

What is the daily schedule like at ReMix?

Each day we will meet between 10am and 2pm MST, with meal breaks. The day will be split into sections: certain hours of the day will be spent learning songs for the ReMix Virtual Concerts with your team, and other hours will be spent in workshops and classes with guest instructors. Variety show, digital dance, and other activities will be available as well.

 

 

I want to improve my solo singing. Would ReMix be a good place to do that?

Absolutely! ReMix is an all-vocal workshop exploring one of the most difficult genres to sing in: a cappella. We will be focusing on topics ranging from stage presence to vocal technique to auditioning, plus many more. We'll be focusing on elements that can help your solo singing, and all aspects of your performing.

 

 

When will I get my ReMix music?

A couple weeks before ReMix begins, you will receive an email containing the songs that you will perform at the ReMix Concerts. It is expected that all songs are memorized before the first day of ReMix. Solo auditions will take place on the first day of ReMix.

 

 

Is there an age limit for ReMix participants?

All participants should be between the ages of 13-18 years* old. During the week, participants will be split into "vocal teams" based on age and skill level. For specific questions or age exceptions, please email remix@byu.edu. *12-year-olds turning 13 by August 31 are welcome.

 

 

How do I join ReMix?

Click on the Audition Now link and fill out the registration/payment form and then proceed to the audition form. You will be asked to record a 20-30 second video of you singing a song of your choice. The songs can be in any style and the videos don't need to be super high quality, your phone camera or web cam will do just fine. Our team will review the entries, and we will let you know within two weeks if you made it!

What equipment do I need to participate?

You will need a computer, smartphone, or ipad that has video and audio recording capabilities. If you have regular headphones or headphones with a microphone, they will help you a lot! 

Can you tell me more about the online audition?

The online audition is quick and easy! All you need to do is upload a video to YouTube of you singing 20-30 seconds of any song (without any accompaniment). Your song can be in any style. The video quality of your audition isn't a huge deal either. Your phone camera or web-cam will do just fine. Check this sample audition video as an example. You will then copy your YouTube audition URL and include it in your audition form. (Make sure the YouTube viewing is set as "Public" or "Unlisted" so we can see it.) Once submitted, your audition will be sent to our team for review, and we'll let you know if you made it within two weeks!

 

 

I'm having trouble uploading a video for my audition. What should I do?

If you are having trouble uploading a video to YouTube, you are welcome to email your video to info@ReMixVocalAcademy.com. (If it is a large file, you may need to use Google Drive or WeTransfer.com to send it to us.) When the registration form asks for a YouTube link, please note instead that you will be sending your audition video via email.

If you have questions about filling out your audition form, please email us at remix@byu.edu or call 801-422-7692. We're here to help!

 

 

 

How much does it cost to participate in ReMix?

The cost of ReMix Online is $200* for the week. This includes vocal and performance instruction from some of the a cappella industry's most talented experts, skill-specific classes and workshops, YouTube link to the virtual performances, and much more! 

 

 

When will the ReMix concert be held?

The ReMix Virtual Concert will be presented Friday, July 31st.
