Banff Centre Call for Aboriginal Singers

Program dates: July 7 - 14, 2012
Application deadline: April 11, 2012

Aboriginal Arts will present the 2012 Diverse As This Land vocal intensive residency at The Banff Centre in the heart of Blackfoot and Stoney territories from July 7, 2012 to July 14, 2012.

At the heart of this project is an exciting eight-day voice intensive residency for 12 Aboriginal singers led by outstanding vocal instructors including Micah Barnes (Ontario), vocal associate Donita Large (Alberta), and the internationally renowned Pacific Curls (New Zealand). Participants will have the opportunity to perform live as a group at the Diverse As This Land concert series during the Banff Summer Arts Festival.

Participants will explore singing as physical experience, breath control, capacity and resonance, understanding the vocal apparatus and solo and group composition. Participants will also receive hands-on development that enhances performance skills and career strategies in the music business.

We invite all interested singers to submit their application to this unique Diverse As This Land program before April 11, 2012.

*Scholarship and financial aid to cover 100 per cent of the program fee (based on shared accommodation) is available.
