In addition to the Masterclass, the a cappella Contest participants are invited to attend a seminar with Professor Michael Fuchs. Following an overview of the mechanisms by which the human voice is controlled and modulated, particular attention will be paid to the interaction between hearing, specific physical sensations related to the voice (e.g. muscle tension and mucosal condition), and the regulatory processes in the brain. Afterwards, participants can consult Professor Fuchs regarding any problems affecting their own voices.


The seminar and consultations are not open to the public.


Following the seminar, Professor Fuchs will give a public lecture (in German).
