BACHCELONA AKADEMIE

A new project with Lluís Vilamajó and Ton Koopman!

We are offering a unique opportunity for student singers and recently graduated singers to form part of a chamber choir conducted by Lluís Vilamajó and Ton Koopman, two outstanding figures in the fields of antique and Bach music. The activities will take place in June of 2022, with the following calendar:

Concert with Lluís Vilamajó – from 9 to 13 June 2022
Programme: Cantata BWV 118 and Bach/Buxtehude dialogue
Training course at the Miracle shrine (Solsona area) and concert at the Espurnes Barroques festival

Concert with Ton Koopman – from 26 to 30 June 2022
Programme: Cantatas BWV 10 and 147
Opening of the Bachcelona Festival – Antique music cycle at L’Auditori
www.auditori.cat/ca/festival-bachcelona-21-22

The project proposes a chamber choir of 3 or 4 persons per part, in which the singers may perform solos at the discretion of Lluís Vilamajó.

This initiative is compatible with the Salvat Bach Grant, since these are two different productions with calendars that do not overlap.

The organisation offers lodging for participating singers from outside Barcelona.

The registration period is from 10 October to 31 October 2021. To register, just send an email to akademie@bachcelona.com, attaching the following documents:

  • A video recording of antique music 
(preferably a link instead of a file)
  • An updated artistic CV

Once your registration has been accepted and after a preliminary selection based on the submitted material, there will be in-person auditions at the Catalonia College of Music (ESMUC) on 18 and 19 November 2021.
