THE ANÚNA WINTER SCHOOL 2020
IN ASSOCIATION WITH VOX INTERNA
Thursday13 to Sunday16 February (10hr00 - 17hr00)
Venue: Pauluskerk, Mauritsweg 19, 3012 JR Rotterdam
We are delighted to announce the initial details of the Anúna Winter School in association with Vox Interna, and are now accepting applicants. The four days of the School take place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and will involve interaction and performance under the supervision of Artistic Director/Composer Michael McGlynn and members of the Anúna Education team.
Anúna has gained international recognition as one of the world's most original vocal ensembles. It is renowned for its mesmerising sound and atmospheric stage performance. The annual Summer School engages participants in a multi-disciplinary approach that includes the musical, literary and historical traditions of Ireland. While this unique approach is applicable to choral, ensemble and solo singers, it is also strongly relevant to the work of conductors, teachers, composers and musicologists.
The Schedule for 2020 includes :
Participation in a performance/presentation with the facilitators from ANÚNA. Delegates will be required to learn a set number of pieces from the Anúna repertoire which will be sent out in advance with pronunciation guides.
Individual and small group lessons will be available during the School at an extra cost.
A presentation and practical workshop on Irish traditional singing (sean nós) and an introduction to the use of the Irish language.
Practical Information :
The School will take place primarily around Pauluskerk, Mauritsweg 19, 3012 JR Rotterdam
Delegates can be aged from 13 years upwards. Under 18s travelling from overseas must be accompanied by an adult/guardian). Parents/guardians of under 18s will be required to complete and sign a parental/guardian consent form.
