FRIDAY MORNING SESSIONS from September
Regular training/composing sessions in Genetic Choir work on Friday mornings. We do it in a two-week rhythm (every other Friday) and have blocks of 8 sessions in a row, with a fixed group of people.
No specific singing background is required, but we ask you to do at least one Genetic Choir workshop first, in order for you to find out whether you enjoy the work we do. The sessions are also training ground for the professional Ensemble, so you will mingle with both new and experienced Genetic Choir singers.
You can currently give yourself up for the next block, which will start in on the 7th of September 2018.
PLACE: studio De Eester, C. van Eesterenlaan 302, Amsterdam
