Saturdays are considered as travel days. Ouverture is planned at Saturday August 15 at 22h.
From Sunday, everyday around noon all singers and musicians gather next to or in one of our two circus tents for half an hours’ plenary kick-off. There the musicians choose what favorites to play, they form groups to play these and they plan their rehearsals. Singers of the choir can apply for or be invited to sing in one of the music groups or bands.
In the afternoons, small music groups and bands rehearse and enrich the favorites, that participants themselves bring in. Woods, meadows, public places and two circus tents equipped with a backline (microphones / PA, drums) are available and personal equipment can be stored. Professional coaching and support will be provided. Music groups and bands can play until 22h.
Performances will be organized, but the way to these is more important than the result. In the bar there can be sung and danced. Some evenings terrace will provide an open stage on specific themes. In 2019 these were singer/songwriter, al that jazz and nostalgia & desire. One evening dinner in the restaurant might be accompanied by music. One night silent disco will be offered.
Thursday August 20, an final presentation will be given in the forest (“White Night’), to be prepared that afternoon.
Friday August 21, there will be an acoustic concert in a beautiful little church at some 10 miles / 15 kilometers from the place we stay. That evening this Music Week ends with a joint dinner – included in the price – and an After Party.
Please, feel free to participate to more activities or less. This Musicians’ Program can be combined with the Singers’ Program. It is up to yourself to create the perfect mix for your active holiday week.
