Europa Cantat Festival offers really diverse programme. Singers (individuals, families, group of friends, choir, vocal groups) can choose from rich repertoire, different genres in the ateliers led by world-renowned mentors.
Some of the ateliers are dedicated to equal voices choirs (SSAA and TTBB) and vocal groups. Here is a short overview.
Ateliers for equal voices choirs (SSAA and TTBB):
The 4-day atelier welcomes all women to sail together to the unique world of women composers. Realize yourself as a Natural woman! Led by Elisenda Carrasco Ribot from Spain.
Sofia in Cigdem, a Greek and a Turk, will completely enchant you in 6 days with the traditional music and dances from the eastern Mediterranean.
Doug Harrington, an American, started out as a gospel and country singer with his three older brothers at the tender age of four. Becoming a world champion in Barbershop in 1989 helped launch his career as a coach. So, there is no one better to spend the 4 days learning about the barbershop music than him!
Ateliers for vocal groups:
Singer Pur is a German vocal group, going strong for more than 30 years. They’re performing as special guests at the festival, but will also lead a 4-day atelier for vocal groups for 3-12 members. Groups will work with them separately and there will also be repertoire for everyone to sing together.
A 4-day atelier for pop/jazz vocal groups. The atelier will target rhythm, intonation and blending. You’ll have 3 different mentors – one day with Jim Daus, another with Peder Karlsson and last two days with members of Accent.
