Collective Choir Composition:
What happens to the dynamic within your choir if you were to ask them to collectively compose a piece of music? Can that even be done? Is there any magic involved or can that be achieved with a regular choir and facilitated by a regular conductor….without a ‘magic’ wand?
Sigrun Sævarsdóttir-Griffiths unpacks the process of collective composition, suitable for choirs of all ages, shapes and sizes, through practical processes and a discussion. Using tools such as improvisation, games, movement and other practical activities, this fun and engaging process will do wonders for internal relationships and bring a new creative dimension to your choir.
