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.
“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.
