Registration for Music Generation Waterford’s inaugural ‘Summer Sing Out’ is now open – an exciting three-day singing camp for children ages 7 to 12 years, presented by Music Generation Waterford in partnership with SprÓg Festival.

Each day, young singers will set off on a musical adventure, singing songs and exploring the sounds of beautiful Waterford City. Along the way they'll visit sites including Garter Lane, Greyfriars French Church, Waterford City Library, Waterford Museum and the city’s finest Cathedrals.

Led by a fantastic team of vocal coaches, participants will explore singing through fun and engaging music activities that will encourage their natural singing voices, build confidence and allow them to make great music with new friends.

Summer Sing Out takes place from 11am to 3pm, 30 July - 1 August. The camp involves a walking trail departing from Garter Lane each morning and finishing in Garter Lane each afternoon.

Participants are encouraged to bring a packed lunch each day.

The SprÓg Children’s Festival is part of Sproai International Street Arts Festival, which takes place each August bank holiday weekend in Waterford City. Dating back to 1993, Sproai has become a firm favourite amongst locals and tourists alike, attracting 100,000+ people to the City over its three days. A much-loved part of the festival programme, SprÓg is presented by Garter Lane Arts Centre for children and their families in the week before and during Spraoi.

Announced as a new participant in Music Generation’s second phase last September, Music Generation Waterford has already kick-started planning and musical activity in the county, with a hugely successful three-day teen vocal camp in June, and a forthcoming ‘Jazz Jam’ session scheduled for early August.
