Coaching Camp

Whether you are a professional group or amateur: At all stages in your career, it is essential to keep evolving, to never stand still, to get feedback from your peers. As the Real Group, we were lucky to have great mentors early on in our career to guide us in finding our expression as a group.“ (Peder Karlsson)

Black Forest Voices offers a unique concept where you can develop musically in a sheltered creative space, yet be part of an inspiring festival.
If you are an ambitious or semi-pro vocal group till 8 members, we want you to apply!

Over the course of 4 days, you will get a chance to work with a world-class mentor and develop a close relationship:


Kim Nazarian (New York Voices), Morten Vinther (The Real Group)


The camp is highly practically oriented: you get the chance to perform on the main festival stage. Your coach will guide you through the soundcheck and prepare for your performance. Finally you will have a closing feedback session with your coach - and receive notes from various festival teachers …
We want to give you the best possible experience and for you to benefit as much as possible from the festival.

Thursday Afternoon: Welcome reception and getting to know your coach and the other groups. First musical session.
Friday: Intensive day with your coach
Saturday morning: Intensive time with your coach
Saturday afternoon: Guided soundcheck with your coach
Saturday evening: According to prior agreement performance as part of the vocal night.
Sundax morning: Feedback Session and wrap-up

In addition, you’ll get the possibility to work with additional festival coaches.
