Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Choral Chameleon, 2015 winner of the Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, is thrilled to welcome applicants to the 6th Summer Institute for composers and conductors in Brooklyn, NY.
Recognizing the demand for new writing for male voices, this year we are adding an additional week to our program for composers wishing to focus on their TTBB choral writing. Choral Chameleon's men in our lab choir will be joined by singers from The Empire City Men's Chorus, who will bring the perspective of performing regularly within an all-male context.
The Choral Chameleon Institute is designed to immerse emerging composers and conductors of choral music in the intricacies of the choral idiom in a nurturing environment surrounded by respected professionals.
It gives students an opportunity to explore and experiment with writing and conducting techniques in a ‘best-case scenario’. Generous lab and podium time is given to all participants to ensure maximum practical and hands-on experience.
A spirit of innovation, married with a traditional perspective on matters of musicianship, work in tandem to provide our students with skills that can enable unlimited thinking.
