I have always dreamt about running my own Vocal Festival and in September 2018 I arranged my very first 'Beyond Vocals' Festival in my beloved Izola in Slovenia, which is my second home. The festival offers an exciting program of concerts and open mic sessions as well as workshops and masterclasses for singers of all levels, (age 18 and above) who are interested in jazz, folk and contemporary music. The festival takes place over a long weekend in September and is a chance to combine a summer holiday by the sea with inspiring and developing vocal workshops and masterclasses. In the evenings, after your afternoon swim in the Adriatic sea, you get to immerse yourself in amazing vocal music ranging from Jazz, Folk, Art.Pop, Classical, World etc. All concerts takes place in the evenings on the local square. -VOCAL MASTERCLASSES AND WORKSHOPS -ENSEMBLE SINGING AND GROUP WORK -EVENING CONCERTS presenting some of Beyond Vocals favourite singers -OPEN TO ALL SINGERS of all musical backgrounds and experiences 18+ Last years performances were:The Magic Lantern, Fini Bearman, ELDA Trio ad Marina Martensson.
