You and your vocal group are invited to join us on April 6-7, 2018 for our TWO-DAY non-competitive festival for VOCAL JAZZ, A CAPPELLA, and MADRIGAL/CHAMBER CHOIRS, featuring two FRIDAY evening concerts* in which your ensemble will sing a song along with The Real Group!
We have a brand new festival format! Your ensemble will begin with a lengthy FORTY-minute clinic with a member of The Real Group, or with Dr. Jeremy Fox. Following the clinic, ensembles will then perform back-to-back for each other at the end of the morning session, and at the end of the afternoon session – receiving taped or written comments from our SMV vocal faculty.
For an additional fee, you may also book a 60- to 75-minute recording session for your ensemble to record a selection or two in our state-of-the-art recording studio. Recording session will be facilitated by SMV faculty member Ryan Howe. Only TEN spots are available for this opportunity, on a first-come first-served basis – so early registration is encouraged.
Your festival experience will also include hands-on master classes such as vocal improvisation, circle-singing, and solo jazz singing. You can also count on a supportive and non-competitive environment, recordings of your group’s performance and on-stage clinic, photos of the festival, and more!
*Please note: As always, there is an additional charge per person for concert tickets.
