The applications for the summer semester 2021 are closed! You can apply again in the winter semester 2021/22.
Due to current security measures, we want to focus on personal improvement and repetition. To achieve that, we thought of an innovative new rehearsal system, which works both in a physical, as well as in a virtual form. At V.O.I.C.E, there will be no rehearsal cancellations. If it is not possible or safe to rehearse physically, we will conduct our rehearsals in a virtual form (as we’ve already done in the last two semesters).
In general, rehearsals will progress as follows for all choirs in alternating order:
- Week A: Rehearsal with new repertoire
- Week B: Workshop (e.g. vocal or rhythmical training, recording, music theory), followed by repetition and further improvements of the existingrepertoire
The advantage of repetition and improvement of the existing repertoire is that we, as a choir and V.O.I.C.E as an entirety, can build up a base repertoire, which is mastered by all singers. Furthermore, this enables us to use the (potentially virtual) rehearsal time to improve upon and further our musical knowledge. The details on which songs will be refreshed and which (virtual) workshop takes place when can be found in your respective rehearsal schedules, which will be sent to you after the application phase. If the situation allows us to rehearse physically and a concert can be done, we will focus mainly on the new repertoire.
In order to create multiple products at the end of the semester, no matter the situation, we thought of a few cool and innovative projects for you:
Planned V.O.I.C.E Projects:
In the summer semester of 2021, two major projects will be held together for all choirs:
- Project 1 (Executed in April) – Music video and professional recording
- Project 2 (Executed in June) – Concert/Flash mob or music video with professional recording (depending on the current situation)
We will decide whether and how Project 2 will be carried out in March/April, since there is no telling how the situation is going to develop and what kind of measures will be implemented by the government.
We’re looking forward to spending a wonderful, active and musical semester with you!
