In 2011, the Festival organizers from amarcord launched the a cappella Workshop (now known as the a cappella Masterclass) to hone the musical skills of young members of the a cappella scene. Having themselves attended courses by the King’s Singers and the Hilliard Ensemble, they are all too aware of the importance of artistic stimulus for their own creativity. And by founding the Contest and the Masterclass, they have demonstrated their determination to support young groups. Meeting experienced professionals gives young singers a valuable boost. Therefore, the a cappella Masterclass provides them with an opportunity to work with a professional singer and an experienced teacher. Moreover, they can touch base with other participants and learn from their strengths and weaknesses.

The Masterclass with Stephen Connolly is open to the public, giving the audience a chance to experience the Contest entrants from a very different angle.
