If you want to meet fellow conductors from all over the globe, work with Simon Carrington on your rehearsal techniques in his daily 4.5 hour master classes, sing new repertoire from all eras and discover a new depth to your voice with Bronislawa Falinska, then you should join us in Italy this summer, from July 26 to August 2. We are an exciting and collaborative music workshop for conductors, music educators and singers, who are interested in rehearsal techniques and love singing in a chamber choral setting.
This intensive and collaborative conducting workshop is geared for 26-30 choral conductors and music educators with strong vocal ability who are interested in rehearsing and performing chamber choral music. We HEARTILY welcome qualified singers who are interested in attending the workshop in a non-conducting capacity; who love to sing in a chamber group environment and/or are very specifically looking to learn rehearsal and conducting techniques. Up to two graduate credits are available through The Boston Conservatory.
There are three possible tiers of participation: Full Conductor, Conducting Auditor, Singer. The afternoon session will consist solely of daily conducting master classes with Simon Carrington. Enrollment is limited to 10 Full Conductors. Each Full Conductor will conduct in every Master Class. EVERYONE sings -- the master class uses the entire workshop ensemble as its laboratory, so everyone receives the benefits of each day's 4.5 hour master class with Simon. Conducting Auditors will have an assigned time to conduct the ensemble, and are also scheduled for a private videoed conducting session with Simon. Over the course of the week, two Conducting Auditors are also chosen to rehearse the ensemble and conduct a piece in the final concert from the CA's morning repertoire.
The two-part morning sessions will consist of Vocal Pedagogy ensemble work with Bronislawa Falinska utilizing the Rohmert Method of Functional Voicetraining, a vocal technique not commonly found in the USA, and clinics on developing a vital chamber choir, with Brian O'Connell.

Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival, July 17-27, 2014
Producer: Classical Movements, Inc.
Location: Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Soweto and Safari
Participate in what South Africa's leading newspaper, the Cape Times, calls "The Largest International Choral Gathering in South Africa" and "Singing That Nourishes Body and Soul." The Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival offers a one-of-a-kind choral experience in dynamic settings such as Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, and Soweto as well as at a scenic wildlife safari park. Perform with several excellent South African choirs and participate in workshops with dynamic South African choral conductors. Ihlombe! annually features a diverse representation of international touring choirs from all over the world in extraordinary venues with enthusiastic audiences. Experience African rhythms, dancing, and wonderful, unique singing. Open to all choirs, each conducted by their own music director.
New in 2014, Ihlombe! will offer an optional choral competition. Competing choirs will sing before a panel of international judges with the opportunity to earn monetary and trophy awards. The best-rated choir at the festival will win a newly-commissioned work in honor of both the choir and the festival. Come away with a love for this extraordinary country and its high standards of choral singing. Ihlombe! is a high value, low priced tour with South Africa’s most famous iconic sights such as the Cradle of Humankind, Table Mountain, and Cape Point, as well as various outreach opportunities and what The Citizen newspaper calls "More Than Just Music."
