Tenso Professionals Meeting 2016 : looking back

Choirs in Space was the topic of the most recent Tenso Professionals Meeting (TPM) in Marseille (FR), 5-7 February 2016.
The meeting was all about getting away from the traditional concert setting. From spatial music to performances in extraordinary locations, or even under the blue sky - how do choirs work with this challenge?

For an impression of the meeting, have a look at a short film, photos, and look at the projects that were presented and discussed.
