Harmoniegesang mit Helen Chadwick

Im Rückgriff auf die reiche britische Tradition des Chorgesangs wird Helen Chadwick die Gruppe in einem fröhlichen und inspirierenden Harmoniegesang-Workshop leiten. Dabei zieht sie sowohl ihre eigenen erhebenden Lieder heran als auch klassische Musik und georgische Polyphonie aus dem Kaukasus, wo sie dreimal auf Reisen war und mit führenden Experten dieser Tradition gesungen hat – einer reichen, alten und einzigartigen Liedtradition. Helens eigene Lieder enthalten traumhafte Harmonien und Texte inspirierender Dichter aus der ganzen Welt.

Harmony Singing with Helen Chadwick

In the great British tradition of choral singing, Helen Chadwick will lead the group in a fun and inspiring harmony singing workshop drawing on her uplifting harmony songs as well as classical music and Georgian polyphony from the Caucus mountains where she has been on field trips three times and sung with leading experts in the tradition. It is a rich, old and unique tradition of songs. Helen’s own songs include gorgeous harmonies, and those with texts by inspirational poets from around the world.

“Helen Chadwick’s workshop was wonderful, I have been waiting 50 years for it! In the space of just two days she gave us many different approaches and ideas how harmonies can be built up, how to improvise on a melody, how to write a song using any given text … she really opened the doors wide into a garden of many possibilities.”
Tamiko Thiel, workshop participant.

Ich habe am Harmoniegesangworkshop mit Helen Chadwick teilgenommen. Hat mir sehr gut gefallen…eine offene freundliche Atmosphäre, Momente wunderbarer Harmonie , auch die Herausforderung selbst kreativ zu werden. Und der Raum (abgesehen vom künstlichen Licht) war passend ,mit Blick auf Bäume und Isar!

The two days with Helen Chadwick were enormously inspiring and fulfilling! It was a pleasure and still challenging to learn some of her wonderful own songs and sing them with the group. The workshop was intensive, we got a lot of material, including two traditional Georgian polyphonic songs, we got to know various body-voice-exercises, experimented with our own voices and were finally brought to composing  own songs. Time was flying and I would love to continue this amazing work with Helen! Thank You!
