Seattle Grunge – Nirvana 1 Week Camp – $500
GRAND OPENING SPECIAL = $300
Nirvana was best known for introducing grunge music to listeners outside of the Seattle scene and eventually to the world. This music will leave your muscles tired and your voices horse. If you want to find out the magic that was behind this legendary band, this camp is for you. It’s gonna rock out and it’s gonna be loud…prepare to sweat!!
In the late 1980s Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene, releasing its first album Bleach for the independent record label Sub Pop in 1989. The band eventually came to develop a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses. After signing to major label DGC Records, Nirvana found unexpected success with “Smells Like Teen Spirit“, the first single from the band’s second album Nevermind (1991). Nirvana’s sudden success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, and the band’s frontman Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the “spokesman of a generation”, with Nirvana being considered the “flagship band” of Generation X. In response, Nirvana’s third studio album, In Utero (1993), featured an abrasive, less-mainstream sound and challenged the group’s audience. The album did not match the sales figures of Nevermind, but was still a commercial success and critically acclaimed.
TPI camp attendees will learn 2-3 songs by this band, we’ll rehearse them, work on stage presence, performance skills & polish the overall show. We’ll then rehearse on Friday morning in preparation for the big performance for family & friends Friday evening.
Camp officially starts at 9:00AM and ends at 5:00PM but we are allowing early drop-off from 8-9AM & late pick up between 5-6PM for an additional fee. During early drop off and late pick up, the campers will play games and get to know one another during this time.
Concert to follow at the end of the week – 6-7:30PM on the TPI Concert Stage.
