Singing workshop 2019 with Henk Neven
Choir workshop concert 2020 in the Alps
Singing workshop 2020 with Maarten Koningsberger
The 2020 Academy choir and Lake Annecy
The singers choose between two workshops :
With Maarten Koningsberger the singers focus their work on soloist repertoire, performance, as well as collegial practice. Technical work will concentrate on posture, breathing, phonation and voice consistency, so that students may develop their instrument. Students will study how a successful performance also requires expression and interpretation of a piece. Every day starts with a class in posture and breathing. Every student receives a daily private lesson in vocal technique with Maarten Koningsberger.
Students works with Helene Dufour and Stefano Intrieri, either individually or in small groups.
The choir is conducted by Philippe Le Fèvre, artistic director of the Music Academy, and Adam Vidovic. All choral singers take part in a daily class of vocal technique with Muriel Ferraro.
Choir conducting Academy
The workshop offers intermediate and advanced students in choral directing the opportunity to work in a challenging yet supportive environment. Amateur choral directors and professional musicians may also apply.
Tuition program includes score study, gesture, rehearsal technique and work with choral singers. The workshop focuses on connecting gesture with sound.
The students work with a pilot chip on a daily basis, and with the Academy choir on a regular basis.
