AOIC International Choral Conducting Summer School 2018
The Association of Irish Choirs (AOIC) presents its 39th International Choral Conducting Summer School for conductors, teachers, music students, choral singers and musicians. The only one of its kind in Ireland, this seven-day intensive course offers a wealth of expertise from international tutors, all of whom are active conductors and experienced teachers of conducting. With courses designed to meet the needs and abilities of every student — from beginners to experienced and established conductors — participants at all levels will develop and refine their core conducting skills, with more advanced classes focusing on areas such as rehearsal technique, interpretation, vocal technique, style, and pronunciation of languages.
A special invitation is also issued to choral singers who would like to train their voices further and simply enjoy seven days of singing a wide range of excellent choral music. This course also welcomes those who simply wish to observe.
Based in the beautiful surroundings of the University of Limerick, this year’s summer school will provide the usual intensive instruction in choral conducting given by dynamic and inspirational tutors. A range of workshops will cover essential and stimulating topics; there will be daily warm-ups and choir sessions and an evening of masterclasses - all ensuring a varied, vibrant and valuable course to be enjoyed by all.
