The Brazilian Virtual Choir Lab - 2022

The Brazilian Virtual Choir Lab is a Latin vocal course designed by Mi La Musica School, located in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil and hosted in Australia by Great Southern A Cappella founder and choir director Diana May Clark.

The course is live from Rio and focuses on singing Brazilian standards such as Corcovado, Samba do Avião, Aquarela do Brasil (Brazil), among many others. Learn the original lyrics in Portuguese, the history of the compositions and music styles direct from the source.

The Final Project culminates in the production of a recording of the choir.

Meeting Time:

Tuesdays - 8 pm Melbourne (AEST)

Course duration is 11 weeks with each song we study and harmonise being recorded. As the audio is recorded students focus on learning and hearing themselves evolve as a choir and working on their harmony, groove and pronunciation together. The last 3 classes are at a more relaxed and social pace singing through songs and immersing in all things 'musica brasileira'.

All classes are recorded (zoom) so if you miss one you can watch it later and catch up at your own pace.
