You and your vocal group are invited to join us on April 5-6, 2019 for our TWO-DAY non-competitive festival for VOCAL JAZZ, A CAPPELLA, and MADRIGAL/CHAMBER CHOIRS, featuring two FRIDAY evening concerts* with The Real Group!  

 

We have tweaked our new educational festival format! Your ensemble will begin with a lengthy clinic with a member of The Real Group, along with one of our own (American) SMV hand-picked clinicians like Dr. Jeremy Fox.  Your ensemble will be in a "Flight" of morning ensembles or of afternoon ensembles.  At the end of the morning or afternoon session – your ensemble will perform, receiving taped/written comments from our SMV vocal faculty.

 

For an additional fee, you may also be able to book a 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 an SMV faculty member.  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 dedicated time for The Real Group to hang out with directors, Real Group Masterclasses, as well as other hands-on Masterclasses.  You can also count on a super supportive and non-competitive environment, recordings of your group’s on-stage clinic, photos of the festival, and more!

*Please note: As always, there is an additional charge per person for concert tickets.
