Choir Stage Performance

How do you create a captivating staging of you choir?

Once you have learned the music and the ensemble is ready to take it onto the stage the question arises – how are we performing? Where to stand? Where to look? How to look?

The workshop in Choir Stage Performance helps you address these questions, through presenting a concept called Concert Design. We take a look at the concert situation as an event, where communication is taking place, and discuss how we as singers may act and react towards our audiences. Examples are presented, and the participants of the workshop are guided through a number of exercises with a focus on how to develop communicative skills as performers combined with physical awareness on stage.
