Berklee India Exchange (BIX) Vocal Forum
New Delhi, India
August 11, 2018
The Berklee Tandon Global Clinics offer you the opportunity to experience Berklee-style classes closer to home. This one-day vocal-centric workshop focuses on choral and a cappella concepts, the basics of vocal anatomy and vocal health, and a discussion about music as a career.
The BIX Vocal Forum will be a one-day vocal-centric workshop.
The clinics will cover the following topics, among others:
Basics of vocal anatomy, technique, and vocal health
A cappella and choral concepts
A choral forum, for which local school, college, and community choirs are encouraged to register
A group discussion about music as a career and a related Q&A with Berklee clinicians
A certificate of participation will be presented only to the members of choirs that are shortlisted to present a song at the session.
You can register here.
Deadline for choral submission is July 21, 2018, by 5:00 p.m. EST.
Choirs that are interested in participating in our choral forum will need to submit additional materials with the registration form. Up to four choirs will be shortlisted. Other choirs will be put on a waitlist and are still encouraged to attend.
While there is no upper age limit, you must be at least 10 years old by the start of the program. Although the program is designed for vocalists, musicians of all instruments and music enthusiasts are welcome. Please note that this workshop will not involve playing other instruments—everything will be done through voice and body.
Family, friends, and music teachers are all welcome to register for the session as it will also involve Q&A opportunities regarding music as a career.
This one-day workshop will be held in New Delhi on August 11, 2018. The exact location and event details will be sent to applicants who register by August 1, 2018.
