Orlando for Vocalists

Vocalists are welcome at the Orlando Festival: amateurs of all ages and levels of proficiency, music students and young professionals (these last category of singers will attend the master class). You will receive lessons from the Belgian tenor and experienced master class teacher Axel Everaert. If you cannot bring your own pianist, since it is now also possible to enlist as a duo, you will be working with the pianist Clark Shaufele from Canada or Charly Delbecq from Belgium. Choose how many days you want to attend the festival and how many lessons you would like to follow.

Playing in an ensemble, singing, enjoying concerts and lessons, listening to beautiful chamber music, having interesting conversations with like-minded people: young and old meet at the Orlando Festival!

All participants (with overnight stay) reside during the festival in the beautiful historic former abbey of Rolduc in Kerkrade, the South of the Netherlands. All hotel rooms and rehearsal rooms are in this one primary festival location.

The participant will stay at Rolduc on the basis of full board and lodging. Every body also meets during the meals provided at Rolduc and not just listing to lessons, master classes of concerts. This contributes to the relaxed and unique Orlando atmosphere.

After the concerts in hotel bar ‘The Lost Son’ you will have the opportunity to chat with other participants as well as the musicians who teach at the festival.

You will receive lessons from the Belgian tenor and experienced master class teacher Axel Everaert.
