Choral Workshops 2015

Le Chant des Oyseaux
 
 French version

OUR CHORAL WORKSHOPS

We have been running choral workshops in France since the creation of the association :
19 summer choral workshops and 14 weekend courses.
 
"Rouse yourselves sleeping hearts…"
                                         Birdsong by Clément Janequin
 
Our association 'Le Chant des Oyseaux' is aimed at practice and promotion of high standard choral singing. We run enhancement workshops, not note-learning workshops. Singers are expected to have studied the notes at home on their own before the workshop. So our choral workshops can offer the chance of a thorough work and an ever more active and finer listening in a very friendly and joyful atmosphere.
 
Workshops 1 and 2 are open to amateur choral singers aged 18 years and over with a sound choral background and a weekly vocal practice, committed and involved in studying the music and in enhancement work.
Workshop 3 is open to choral conductors or music teachers with a good vocal practice. 
 
We propose an optional pre-course workshop in June to people who take part in our summer choral workshops 1 or 2 and we send MIDI files to singers who do not read music.
 
"…Uncork your ears…"
                                            C. Janequin
 
Singers come from all over France, Europe and overseas. We welcome singers from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA. 
 
Numbers are limited (40 participants). So if you would be interested in a summer choral workshop, please apply a.s.a.p.
 
Official languages of our choral workshops : both English and French.
 
 

CHORAL WORKSHOPS 2015

We run choral workshops in three different regions of France (Brittany, Languedoc-Roussillon and Rhône-Alps). Our workshops are usually held in summer but we occasionally propose weekends during other seasons.
 

A CAPPELLA MUSIC

Our choral workshops usually focus on cappella choral music jewels, both sacred and secular, rather than major opera or oratorio repertoire. Please be curious, there are so many masterpieces to discover.
 
 
FRENCH TOUCH
 
Respect for the composers we sing choral music in its original languages even if translated pieces would be more accessible.
 
 
We invite you to learn more about our upcoming choral workshops. Please have a look and enjoy your visit !
 
We look forward to seeing you in our upcoming summer choral workshops. Please get in touch !
