The Real Group’s 2019 Fall Institute Events
Friday, October 18
Breakout 6 (2:45 PM – 4:00 PM) | Gratz Room 5G
All Ears is a workshop developed by Anders Edenroth and Katarina Henryson that focuses on the ability to listen. It addresses the individual singers responsibility in a group at the same time as it proves the power of the collective movement.
The idea is to provide a tool for ensembles to develop trust and initiative by heightening the level of the way you listen. We will do exercises that raises the sensitivity of how we can hear each other in the room and talk about the individual and collective aspects of this. We will be singing a simple song (no preparation needed) for nearly the whole session and work in two groups to exemplify how the group can challenge and expand the listening ability.
This workshop can be done with all levels of singers and needs no preparation other than it demands a lot of focus.
Rehearsal methods for vocal groups and choirs
Breakout 7 (4:15 PM – 5:30 PM) | Gratz Room 4E
In this session we will share some thoughts on our artistic work as well as our methodology that has evolved over the years. To deal with the challenges of working without a conductor, in styles that sometimes requires a different approach than the regular choir/ensemble methodology, the singers in the group have constantly tried to find new ways of developing communication, collective listening to find a more singer-centered methodology. This is an ongoing process that we would like to discuss with you.
