A big part of the residency are the band workshops. The results of the workshops will be performed on the last evening.
12 CLOUDS OF JOY | band workshop 1
experienced / professional level
For three days the participants will be working on compositions and arrangements by Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981), originally written for Andy Kirk’s 12 Clouds of Joy 1929-31. This band workshop will be led by the bandleader and trumpet player Marie-Anne Standaert from Gent/Belgium.
SYSTERS 2 | band workshop 2
intermediate / advanced amateur level
Here the participants will be focusing on a repertoire by female composers too. This band workshop will be led by the bandleader, trumpet player and singer Angela Strandberg from Paris.
On the other hand the residency will give space for feminist perspectives, empowerment, exchange and visions of the future. The afternoon workshops engage with topics such as presence, voice, movement, resonance and expression, that are not music related. And there will be an exchange about “women in jazz”, experiences of female empowerment in a male dominated music business, female leadership, networking, and collectivity. Workshops will be led by anna stiede and Jean Klinghammer.
