Application deadline for the Theatre of Voices master course has been extended
Good news: We have extended the application deadline for the Theatre of Voices master class to April 10th.
Paul Hillier, Else Torp, Signe Asmussen, Paul Bentley-Angell and Jakob Bloch Jespersen will come and join the Sibelius Summer Academy faculty on 19th to 24th August 2019.
The ensemble is known for its extensive repertoire of contemporary music, often juxtaposed with early music. Its programmes feature many of the most eminent composers of recent times, including Kaija Saariaho, Heiner Goebbels, Berio, Pärt, Reich, Cage, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen and Stockhausen, while among its current favourite ‘early’ composers are Perotin, Dowland and Buxtehude.

During the Sibelius Summer Academy course students will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform classical a cappella ensemble repertoire, ranging from medieval to contemporary music. The Theatre of Voices course at the Sibelius Summer Academy is open to vocal ensembles and individuals both from within the Sibelius Academy and from outside.
