V.O.I.C.E POP PLUS Course
For all our members who “want more”…
- Are you a member of the POP Choir or POP International Choir who is still looking for a little bit more input in a smaller group?
- Do you want to develop your singing and musical skills faster and try out what it’s like to work artistically on a professional level?
- Are you looking for a challenge with more demanding arrangements and are you willing to study them yourself and work on them at an advanced level according to the motto “dig deeper”?
Then this additional module is perfect for you!
Auditions / Dates
You can now register for the winter semester 2022: Registration
When applying, pick an audition slot and prepare a song of your choice. Whether you sing the song a cappella, accompanied by an instrument (there will be a piano on site) or with a karaoke background track (phone/bluetooth box) is up to you. Afterwards, we will do two vocal exercises and decide together, which register you will be assigned to (soprano 1-2, alto 1-2, tenor 1-2, bass 1-2). You can find a presentation on the audition procedure in this video as well as on Soundcloud.
We’re looking forward to seeing you!
