Curtis Auditorium, CIT Cork School of Music
Admission: free of charge
The Festival, in collaboration with CIT Cork School of Music, was delighted to welcome our guest ensemble, the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble The Swingles, to host an interactive workshop based around a cappella singing and performance. The masterclass session included warm ups, a practical workshop with two selected cork-based ensembles, vocal improvisation, and an interactive, open session incorporating performance style, repertoire selection, arrangements, and the voice as a percussive instrument. This Grammy ® award-winning vocal ensemble also offered insight into their individual career paths and the development of the ensemble over the years and involved all attendees in the practical aspects of the session.
