Vocal Academy

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 work with Hélène Dufour and Stefano Intrieri, either individually or in small groups.

The day ends with a masterclass on 4 major J.S. Bach pieces: St John Passion, St Matthew Passsion, Mass in B minor, Christmas Oratorio

  • With Josep Cabré students will study Carissimi's Jephte , in a daily 3-hour-workshop, and then perform that piece in the final concert.
