Vocal Inventions: An Improvisational Choir

This Vocal Inventions Choir is for singers and non-singers. All Levels of singers are welcome; complete beginners to the very experienced. 

Simply sing, what is sung to you - it’s that easy. An Improvisational Choir is an excellent way to have fun, sing, relax, feel connected, release happy endorphins and build community.

The rhythm of the sessions: Each session will begin with vocal warm ups, vocal technique and vocal improv skill-building exercises. All singers are then divided into groups according to their vocal pitch range. Each group will then be given a melodic or rhythmical pattern to sing (spontaneously composed by Martina). The parts and voices build and build until the improvised song grooves along; there is then an opportunity to solo over the top of the newly improvised tune, if you are moved to do so (but no pressure!).
                                                                                                                          
Here’s an example of the choir in action. All participants are complete strangers with little to no singing experience: https://youtu.be/DfFhReeVQS4

Please arrive 5 minutes early. Bring water. No perfumes. Tak.

Written from two students:

"Martina is living music, and she makes you feel it, whenever you've done something nice or extraordinary - as a group and as individuals, as beings. All of us are being offered this great chance to step deep into THE MUSIC, creating it together on the spot. In this room of soundscapes and unpretentious movement: We're able to communicate with each other - each and every one of us - in a way which to me often feels more accomplished and precise than what our modern, distorted language of words is able to bring".

"We've experienced our voices creating beauty and excitement in harmonies and rhythms - and I've heard my own voice in a profound way, letting it loose with less and less hesitation right from word go. Such fun and understanding!”
