Le Capriccio Français Summer Music Academy offers a tuition program for singers, harpsichordists, and students in choir conducting, as well as a choral program, from July 15 (arrival before dinner) to July 22 (departure July 23 after breakfast). The Academy is situated in Barcelona, in Casa Sant Felip Neri, an ancient convent welcoming meetings, and especially musical workshops.
The students will develop their technical skills together with their stylistic skills on early music repertoire. As an addition to their practice of the instrument or voice, all students will attend a special workshop on baroque dance. Singers, instrumentalists and choral singers work together all through the session, sharing their stylistic knowledge, and prepare auditions and the final concert together. The concert will be held on Sunday 23 July (5:00 pm) in Església de Sant Gaietà.
Students interested in the vocal, conducting or instrumental Academy must be advanced musicians (and must send a curriculum before they can be accepted). Professional artists or music teachers are welcome, as part of their continuing professional development. The number of choral singers is intentionally limited (28 max.), so that each section of the choir is balanced. A strong experience of choral singing is required.
French and English are spoken in our international Music Academy.
