New York Voices International Camp
August 20-26, 2023
We’ll be holding our Annual International Vocal Jazz Camp with our partners at the Bayerische Musikakademie in beautiful Marktoberdorf, Germany. We hope you join us.
We are so excited to be returning to the Musikakademie, a converted castle of days gone by, and offering our vocal jazz camp for all our International and adventurous friends.
This is a six-day music intensive focusing on group and individual singing with many specialized electives sprinkled throughout the curriculum. Aspiring jazz vocalists are assigned to one of the four vocal jazz choirs which are directed by each of the New York Voices. They learn two arrangements throughout the week that culminate in a final performance. Campers also enjoy solo coaching from New York Voices and select their own track of classes which may include improvisation, arranging, vocal technique, rehearsal techniques, and more! Plus, campers participate in an all-camp ensemble that bond over an arrangement at the end of every day.
In addition to the New York Voices, the camp faculty includes Anne Czichowsky (Teacher & Camp Director), Claus Dieter Bandorf, as well as other master teachers TBA.
There is no audition, it is first come first serve…..unless you would like to apply for a scholarship.
OPEN TO SOLOISTS AND GROUPS!!!
A Note From New York Voices,
We are so grateful to our partners at Bayerische Musikakademie Marktoberdorf and Anne Czichowsky who helped make this camp find a home is such a beautiful community and space. The facility is fully outfitted for all of our classes, a beautiful venue for our evening concerts and the meals are always healthy and delicious. For those of you staying on campus, you will enjoy the bright rooms and airy hallways. You may also stay in a nearby hotel. Everyone at the Akademie are amazing people, hosts and dear friends and we appreciate their faith in us.
Thank you to Landes-Jugendjazzorchester Bayern (LJJB) who are providing our camp with wonderful musicians (piano, bass and drums) from the pool of the Bavarian Youth Jazz Big Band (LJJB).
Looking forward to meeting you,
Kim, Lauren, Peter and Darmon (New York Voices)
