#ISing
Carol of the Bells

Do you like to sing?
This Christmas your voice is the best gift!

Take part in in the latest edition of #ISing to be filmed in Girona and perform the Christmas song Carol of the Bells together with the GIO Symphonia orchestra and the Barcelona Ars Nova choir.


For several weekends and together with the rest of the participants and professionals, we will create a participative choral video to be broadcast this Christmas.


The video will be directed by Igor Cortadellas and the musical training will be carried out by Mireia Barrera.

SELECTION PROCESS

  • Open to people aged 16 and upwards. To participate as a singer, some musical and/or choral experience is required.

  • Places are limited. Should more people apply than the places available, a draw will be held before a notary to decide, at random, who'll be admitted and who'll be on the waiting list, albeit ensuring a balanced proportion of voices.

  • Final confirmation of participation will be received by the selected participant in writing as from 11 October 2022.

  • Once the selected applicants have received final confirmation of their participation, they be sent the score and the audio reference to get prepared for the working sessions detailed below that will take place in Girona. Participants will be expected to know the piece before the rehearsals and should know it by heart for the shooting.

  • #ISing Carol of the Bells will be performed using a four-voice musical arrangement lasting approximately 3 minutes. The arrangement will be provided once participation in the project has been confirmed.
