Play / sing your favorites in French nature

Inspiring music week open to everyone and all levels – August 17-24, 2019

Play your favorite music in small groups or bands. Sing in the choir. Try singing in a band. Genres like pop, rock, latin, jazz and (light) classic can be expected. Two circus tents and annexing forest and meadows will be our playing fields. 


Mornings, the choir will rehearse. Repertoire will be prepared by the conductor. Vocal-technique gets extra attention. If you prefer, individually. Invitations to sing in one of the music groups / bands can be expected. One of these rehearsals will take place in a local church. 


In the afternoons, music groups will rehearse and enrich favorites that participants themselves bring in, professionally coached and supplemented.

Anke Kuiper & Pieter van Leeuwen

Guided and supervised by Pieter van Leeuwen, researcher and teacher of  social professionals and volunteers on how to work with music. Anke Kuiper, musician (piano, saxophone) and teacher (piano) directs the choir. 

Take it easy

“Fields of Gold” by Sting refers to the beautiful, quiet surroundings where we’ll stay, as well as to our musical preference in the after-summer: light, nice terrace, surprising or tranquil tone color, instrumental and (choir)singing. (Pieter van Leeuwen)

Performances will be organized, but the way to these is more important than the results. At night terrace, bar and restaurant provide an open stage. At the end of the week, there will be a final amplified presentation and an acoustic concert.

Because participants from different countries are being expected, the main language will be (wrong) English.

    I am very interested. I am 66 and have taken jazz singing lessons duringe the last two years and really enjoy it. I used to play cello when I was young, but enjoy the creativity of jazz and good pop music. So, is there place for me in the group?

      Hi Peter. Looks a proper fit to me! Jazz (wind instruments included) will be there. Like bands with pop music. And also (light) classical: you might reconsider your cello? Repertoire will be based on the favorites of the participants themselves. I’m sure that there is a place for you in the group. There will be more elderly participants, but young ones too.
