THE ANÚNA TECHNIQUE
Education Coordinator Lucy Champion
Anúna has travelled on a singular road in the world of vocal music.
Over the last two decades we have developed a specific methodology that has evolved from the unique nature of our performance practices and history. These techniques have a universal relevance that can be applied equally to amateur, youth and professional ensembles and solo singers. Our ideas address the fundamental nature of singing itself in a radical new way that is simple, clear and familiar.
Anúna have brought these ideas and techniques all over the world in the last five years, facilitating workshops and clinics in Spain, the UK, Belgium, Israel, Iceland, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, the USA, Canada, Ireland, Japan and China. The ANÚNA Summer School which takes place in Dublin has been hugely successful and has attracted singers from over twenty countries.
ANÚNA INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
The Anúna Summer School in Dublin has attracted delegates from twenty different countries and takes place in June of each year. To date delegates from over twenty countries have been part of this unique experience which focuses on the fundamental nature of singing itself and includes modules on conducting, singing technique, sean nós (traditional singing from Ireland) and a final concert where the participants perform with the members of Anúna.
The Anúna 30th Anniversary school will take place this June 2017 over five days and includes a visit and workshop at the National Opera House in Wexford. Details HERE.
ANÚNA TRAINING CHOIR
The Anúna Training Choir was inaugurated in November 2015 and forms the basis for a new youth ensemble comprising of singers based on the island of Ireland. Created with the intent of developing a group that specialise in the techniques that have been developed by Anúna, the ensemble will become fully active in 2017.
