The “Knights Halls” and the “Enchanted Garden” built by the Crusaders and Ottomans provide the perfect setting for this vocal celebration. For four days and nights the sounds of singing in workshops, concerts and open stage gatherings will echo around the ancient town.
The “Swingle Singers” will conduct exciting daily workshops with choirs and musical ensembles from Israel and abroad.
Kevin Fox, Canada/UK, of the “Swingle Singers”, will conduct a Modern A-Capella Workshop. The world renowned conductor, Maestro Tim Brown, UK, a favorite conductor of Israeli choirs, will also conduct a “Vocal Jazz” workshop.
