Ensemble Singing focusses on the singing skills and knowledge that are sought after most in the freelance music field as well as by vocal ensembles (freelance and institutional).
Examples of ensembles with professional singing positions include the Edvard Grieg Choir in Bergen, Det Norske Solistkor based in Oslo, and Kilden Vocal Ensemble in Kristiansand. This ensemble collaborates with the University of Agder and thus provides excellent performing opportunities and collaboration for UiA's Ensemble Singing students.
In projects and workshops as well as master classes and seminars, you will gain expert knowledge in repertoire, score reading and score singing, interpretation, languages and translating experience. Other topics will include musicians` physiology, educational and psychological aspects, and relevant issues related to tradition and innovation. Ensemble skills and interaction will have a continuous focus. At the same time, you will receive individual singing lessons.
Ensemble Singing will provide valuable expertise in performance and work opportunities for singers. UiA is the only institution in Norway offering this in-depth field as of now.
