MASTERCLASS SINGERS AND CONDUCTORS
On Saturday, May 23 2015 the first masterclass for singers and conductors will be organized. Six singers (classical) and six conductors (HaFaBra) will have the chance to discover how to collaborate optimally with a brass band that is assembled especially for this masterclass. They will be guided by singing educationist Franka van Dommelen (Teacher solo singing Fontys Academy of Music in Tilburg) and conductor Chris Derikx (winner WMC). During their education, many student do not have the opportunity to work together with a solo vocalist, conductor and orchestra. Franka and Chris will give suggestions on how to make the collaboration successful and will give singers and conductors the opportunity to gain experience with each other. Various questions will be addressed, such as: how do you prepare yourself, how do you conduct a solo vocalist, how do you present yourself during a concert, what is the relation between solo vocalist, conductor and orchestra? Of course there will be ample opportunity to ask your own questions.
The pieces will be chosen in mutual consultation.
At the end of the day there will be an opportunity to get to know each other and for networking.
