- Académie : du 16 au 23 août 2015
- Festival Les Inouïes : Le 21 juin, du 26 au 28 juin et du 20 au 27 août
The idea of organising a training seminar in Arras was born from a desire to share the energy and spirit of the festival with as many musicians as possible whether in the process of becoming, amateurs or professionals. It is all about having a special time in the year, ten days totally immersed in music, with young fledgling and fully-fledged artists, creators, amateurs, neophytes, volunteers and actors of the festival socialising and building warm and friendly relationships, ten days sharing, discovering, creating, with the opportunity to play on stage, and to enjoy artistic and festive moments. You only need to indulge, in the most simple, pleasurable, humorous and passionate way, within the superb historical Arts’ Quarter of Arras. The link with the festival allows trainees to perform in different forms and on many occasions, to attend the festival’s events and also to listen to their teachers’ performances.
The training seminar starts three days before the festival so as to give the opportunity and time to share outside the festival. An extremely rich whole week can then meet everyone’s requirements : public classes, time devoted to exchange on music styles and careers, daily lessons on body control led - collectively or individually – by a doctor specialising in arts medicine, Feldenkrais method and yoga sessions.
With a vast musical and artistic eclectic mixture, ranging from classical instrumentalists to vocal jazz, instrumental improvisation, choir for all, vocal workshop, workshop for children, it is all about having a two-week musical experience with no petty squabbling, during which participants mutually enrich each other in a jolly summer mood!
