The Swingles Camp

We are proud to present one of the most prestigious vocal groups in the world: The Swingles. Join us for a 4-day exploration of a cappella singing in the most beautiful and evocative setting: the medieval Castello degli Acaia in the heart of Fossano, surrounded by the panorama of the Maritime Alps and the world-famous region of Langhe.

The Swingles are renowned for their commitment to education, to community-building and to excellence in teaching. The 120 participants will be split into two groups, that will have the opportunity to work closely with members of the famous vocal group.

This camp offers a complete package, helping you to improve on all the essential skills needed for a cappella singing as well as going into depth with aspects of ensemble practice that are particular to The Swingles. You will get to sing some of these group’s repertoire and as the highlight perform it in the Gala Concert on stage with them!

We’ll also have a special activity again this year – recording our festival song in the collaborative studio, led by Erik Bosio (Cluster) and Grammy-Award Winning producer Bill Hare.
And on the final day we’ll be filming a Festival Video to the song with all participants!

We are looking forward to see you in Fossano!
Welcome to the Vocalmente Family!
