Involving children in music projects can take many shapes. We will investigate how choirs can work with children on many different levels, producing high-quality projects that inspire all participants.

We will look at benchmark projects developed by

  • Casa da Música (PT)
  • The Sixteen (UK)
  • RIAS Kammerchor (DE)
  • Palau de la Música (CAT)
  • BBC 10 pieces (UK)
  • Kipina (FI)

and more, and discuss these with their creators and producers. A list of good examples can be found here.

The discussion can move in many directions, but will certainly touch on:

  • developing projects as an ensemble ↔ working within a larger organization (concert hall, music school)
  • creating new projects ↔ connecting to existing educational tools
  • producing a one-time event ↔ investing in a sustainable relationship
  • performance (passive audience) ↔ interactive (active participants)
  • projects led by individual musicians ↔ working as a choir
  • involving other disciplines (art, dance) ↔ focusing on music
