Workshops at PACF2016

Info & Registration
PACF is not just for vocal music fans, but also for a cappella groups, individual singers, beatboxers and performers!

The basic three-day workshop is for existing vocal groups, as well as singers who would like to try singing in a contemporary a cappella group. The instructors of the a cappella workshop will be members of the hosting vocal band SKETY. Individual work with groups will be aimed at perfecting their overall musical abilities, vocal technique, blending the voices and learning about “best practices” of sound-check and working with the microphone on stage.

The workshop also includes the introductory lecture and optional individual lessons of Complete Vocal Technique with certified CVT trainer Dita Kosmáková.
The other workshops are less time consuming and can be taken separately.
