RAMA Vocal Center Summer Camp 2019 - TBA

Appetizer: RAMA Vocal Center Summer Camp 2018

Welcome to a unique summer camp where participants from all over Europe come to Aalborg to meet a renowned team of world class teachers, ensuring the highest pedagogical and artistic level of all.

This is a fun learning experience for choir leaders and skilled ensemble singers who want to get an overview of the newest and most innovative working styles within ‘rhythmic' vocal music. How do you make vocal music sound just 'right' when it comes to styles such as pop, rock, jazz, gospel, world, improvisation etc.? Many choirs and a cappella groups face this challenge in rehearsal as well as in performances featuring these musical styles. Innovative Choir Leading studies at RAMA Vocal Center in Aalborg provides the answers to meet this challenge!

During the camp the participants and teachers are part of many collective sessions and activities in an interdisciplinary environment, in order to accomplish a collaborative style of the summer camp. Various vocal games and exercises will be mixed with discussions. Score preparation is required. PDF’s and midi files will be sent out in advance. Singers are expected to sing their parts correctly from the first session.
