…music meets the soul.


Singing with movement and body percussion – in the moment.

In the unique LAB sessions in Leading Voices, co-creation and experiment are the main focus. In this LAB, participants will work together with Santi Serratosa and Cara Tasher on singing with subtle physical intent and body percussion in different ways. SPARK will consist of several sessions over three days. Participants must join all sessions for the full learning experience, and the audience is welcome to watch the LAB sessions and the final presentation.

How a LAB differs from a regular workshop

A LAB differs from a regular workshop for choral conductors. A LAB is not about following a leader, but about creating content together: both session leaders and participants operate on an equal level to get the best result possible. Or fail together. Are you up to this?
