Summer week choral conducting pop and jazz
26th-30st July, 2021


In the Practicum we will sing mainly pop and jazz arrangements, although some gospel, world music and arrangements for musicals may also be included at times. The pieces chosen for inclusion are those from well-established and international arrangers. For example, in 2019 the Ward Swingle Cursus focused on the following arrangements:
