null Vocal Ensemble at Sibelius Summer Academy course postponed to 2021

Due to the COVID19 situation, we regretfully have had to make the decision to postpone the Vocal Ensemble at Sibelius Summer Academy course to Summer 2021. 

The Theatre of Voices - one of the world's foremost  vocal ensembles - was supposed to come and teach with us on 17.-22.8.2020.  If you already have applied for the course, please follow your email for additional information. 

Theatre of Voices was established by Paul Hillier in 1990 in the UK. It now has its permanent base in Copenhagen, Denmark. 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, Luciano Berio, Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich, John Cage, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen and Karlheinz Stockhausen, while among its current favourite ‘early’ composers are Perotin, Dowland and Buxtehude.
