Tenso Professionals Meeting 

Choirs in Space was the topic of the most recent Tenso Professionals Meeting in Marseille (FR), 5-7 February 2016.
35 professionals from around Europe discussed benchmark examples, challenges and future plans for professionals choirs performing outside the traditional concert setting. The overall conclusion: space is not only a spatial, but also a mental concept: and if we set our goals right, choirs have the tools to create great concert forms in many different and surprising places, appealing to new and existing audiences alike.
