RAMA Vocal Center Summer Camp 2020

29 June - 2 July 2020

Welcome to a unique and international summer camp where choir leaders and vocal ensembles from all over the World come to Aalborg to meet a renowned team of educators, ensuring the highest pedagogical and artistic level of all.

This is a fun learning experience 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 vocal ensembles 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.

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. Singing, conducting, improvise, move & grove, vocal games and exercises will be mixed with reflection and perspective. For the night session choir rehearsals, score preparation is required. PDF’s and midi files will be sent out in advance to learn 3 pop/jazz arrangements as a singer in advance.
