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.  Improvisation is a centuries-old art form, proven to boost your risk taking and problem solving skills, as well as your adaptability and performance confidence. 

Course Outline: The rhythm of the sessions: Each session will begin with vocal warm ups, vocal technique and vocal improv skill-building exercises. 

Afterwards singers are 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!). 

*The Vocal Inventions Choir form is inspired by Bobby McFerrin’s “circle singing”. 

 

Vocal Inventions Choir at Spinderihallerne

The choir form is inspired by Bobby McFerrin’s “circle singing” concept: Singers are divided into groups according to their vocal pitch range; melodic and rhythmical patterns/parts are composed by Martina on the spot; in turn each group is given a pattern/part to sing, the parts and voices build and build until the improvised song grooves along; there is then an opportunity to solo over top of the newly improvised tune if you are moved to do so. 

Vocal Inventions – An Improv Choir is an excellent way to have fun, sing, relax, feel connected, release happy endorphins, build community; even among people who speak different languages. 

Simply sing what is sung to you. It’s that easy. 

All levels of singers are welcomed; complete beginners to the very experienced.
