song - improve choir

Instructed by Andrea Kuzmich

The improvising choir is a fun and safe place to exercise your voice in a way you never have before. This workshop will have singers collectively shed their inhibitions and afford them a chance to discover the unusual and unexplored areas of their voices. Simultaneously, singers will be contributing to the creation of a unique, improvised composition. In turn this will also develop the singer’s ear and sensitivity to group dynamic and ensemble blend. Participants will be taught hand cues originally designed by New York composer/improviser Lawrence D “Butch” Morris, and subsequently modified by Christine Duncan, founder/leader of Element, Toronto’s improvising choir.
