IAS Summer Course
Ensembles 2022

Ensemble Week at Westonbirt

27th August - 2nd September 2022

Following the amazing success of Ensemble Week in Summer 2019, in 2022 the week from 27th August to 2nd September will be reserved for a maximum of 4 ensembles & vocal groups that will have the amazing chance of a whole week of full immersion singing in dedicated sessions with Stephen on their own repertoire, ending with a great final concert on Thursday 1st September.

The exclusivity of this course makes it a fantastic opportunity for each of the participating groups to work in depth on the various aspects of their performance.

The international make up of the course provides a further element of excitement and enrichment for each group, with the amazing opportunity to benefit not only from Stephen’s experience, skills and expertise but also to meet other singers who share their passion for a cappella and choral singing.

Each ensemble will work with Stephen on their own repertoire, with 2/3 sessions per day and will also have the possibility to attend the other groups’ working sessions, thereby fully rounding out their experience of the course.

On Thursday 1st September the ensembles will have the great opportunity to sing a concert in the beautiful settings of St Mary’s Church in Tetbury.

Please notice that this week is BY INVITATION ONLY.

However, if you would like Stephen to consider inviting your ensemble, please contact us.

Please note that you should be prepared to provide examples of your performances, either on YouTube or via MP3 etc.
