  • This intensive program is offered to all singers and already formed groups, aged 15 years old or older, wishing to perfect their knowledge of jazz through ensemble singing. Following an audition, the participants are placed in small groups of homogenous levels, each supervised by The Swingles.
    The program is also offered to already formed vocal ensembles (trio or quartet). These ensembles will have coaching with the guest artists.

    Message from The Swingles:
    "Bonjour! We are The Swingles from London. We are so excited to be returning to Domaine Forget after an unforgettable visit in 2014. This time, we’ll be bringing some brand new music to the camp and working on all the skills you’ll need as part of a contemporary vocal group.

    That means ensemble work, blend, groove, improvisation, stagecraft, vocal percussion and individual vocal coaching. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a wealth of different musical styles in groups of all shapes and sizes, and we’ll bring the week to a climax with a roof-raising concert where we’ll all sing together. Oh, and you can expect some Babyfoot and toasted marshmallows too. See you there!"
