One week of concentrated and creative working on your music, rhythm and / or voice, with some 20-50 other enthusiasts and interested people, in a free and safe holiday atmosphere.
In the mornings, singing takes the lead. The choir is professionally lead. The repertoire that the choirmaster provides, will be varied: pop, classic, world, jazz, opera to battlesongs. One or two songs will be sung with (big) band.
Rest of the days and in the evenings, music will be made. In small groups, that vary according to the repertoire that the participants bring in. All genres welcome: from baroque to singer/songwriter, from hiphop to metal. Participants select on the spot which songs are to be implemented and how far they go. Bring your own instrument and sheet music. Professional assistance and coaching available.
Participants make their program as “full” as he or she wants. Facilities include swimming pools, sauna, hot-tub and (cultural) activities like yoga, circus, sculpting and painting. Surroudings invite to walking and cycling. Aubusson (city) is a pearl.
Appropriate facilities and stimulating guidance will be provided. Like large tents with basic equipment such as sound amplification, a drum kit and the possibility to play audio files. Like an introduction at the first day of the week and every morning a coffee&tea-moment to inspire each other, test ideas, find singing or music partners and plan appointments. Like access to ons or two beautiful, old church in the region for small groups of singers and / or acoustic musicians that want to use these (mutual, no performance). Like a ‘socially-distanced’ stage, bar & audience space with sound reinforcement, drum kit and lighting for performances by smaller groups in the evenings. Like internet access and a copier. And on the last evening (Friday) a joint but ‘socially-distanced’ meal, with the opportunity for idem-performances.
The costs of these facilities and of the organization of this Music Week are € 95 per participant, apart from travel and stay. Minimum age is 13 years.
