Emerging aesthetics

I am in Aalborg at the second LEOSings project which is about the emerging aesthetics of jazz, rock and pop particularly in choral singing. The session is very full and there is some fantastic work going on at the Royal Academy of Music in Aalborg teaching masters residential and distance learning courses in the ‘Intelligent Choir’ and Rhythmic singing ( which is pop, jazz and rock). I am the only representative of the UK here but I am here as secretary of EVTA and so it is a huge privilege to be here. We have had some exciting presentations but so many of the jazz techniques can be adapted for classical and musical theatre singing. Denmark is a young country in many ways and so the energy and excitement from the people here into modern music is very contagious.
