Vocal Instant Composition

Workshop Dates

Methods           Guestbook Workshops

Genetic Choir workshops are open to everyone. Be prepared to work intensely, but don’t worry about your level of experience – no specific vocal skills are required to join. At the same time, experienced and professional singers are always pleasantly surprised and deeply challenged by the high standard of working, notwithstanding the different types of singers present. Any participant is challenged in his/her assumptions about music making and the possibility of their own voice, and leaves our workshops enriched, tired and highly energised. 🙂 The workshops are our own laboratory and training ground, and we are happy to share the work with you!

Upcoming workshops are listed below. Be welcome!


One-Day workshops GENETIC CHOIR

One-Day workshops are for all those who find a weekend too long and a commitment for regular Friday Sessions (see below) too fixed. 🙂

It is also for everyone who just want to dip a toe into the vocal improvisation experience and get to know us in an easy way.

There’s the option to just join until lunch (10:30-13:00), then you pay only 38 euro, and we will deepen the work in a smaller group in the afternoon. There a few places for ‘just morning’ people – send us an email if you want that option: workshops@genetic-choir.org

FRIDAY MORNING SESSIONS (Autumn 2019 / Spring 2020)

Regular training/composing sessions in Genetic Choir work on Friday mornings.

We do it in a two-week rhythm (every other Friday) and have blocks of 8 sessions in a row, with a fixed group for that block. No specific singing background is required, but we ask you to do at least one Genetic Choir workshop first, in order for you to find out whether you enjoy the work we do.
Participants commit for a set of 8 sessions, so that we can deepen the work from one session to the next. The sessions are also training ground for the professional Ensemble, so you will mingle with both new and experienced Genetic Choir singers. If you are interested to join from September 2019, send us an e-mail: workshops@genetic-choir.org

PLACE: studio De Eester, C. van Eesterenlaan 302, Amsterdam

TIME: on Fridays (every two weeks), 10:00-12:30
