Singing week, animated singing
Discover yourself in a new way
Singing in France means singing with the sun. Singing under the guidance of Anne-Marie Blink is much more than just singing, it is an experience, in which you discover yourself in a new way, open your heart to yourself and the other. Anne-Marie, vocal teacher, voice therapist and European well-known choral conductor, takes you to unprecedented heights with her vibrant energy, her powerful personality, passion and love for singing and man. She is accompanied by pianist and composer Harry Herfst, who provides every song and emotion with the right harmony. All this in an environment that invites you to rest, swim, walk, sing and contemplate all that you are busy.

Unprecedented musical enjoyment
Rest, breathe and, literally, catch your breath. Singing from Mantras to Taizé pieces. World music pieces that challenge you and add an unusual playing sound to your ear.
Together the love of the beautiful place Le Moulin experienced is an important goal of the workshop that Harrie and Anne-Marie will give you. Be inspired, inspired and led to an unprecedented musical enjoyment, in which the central themes are with each other, pleasure, heart and energy.
Singing the general condition of body and mind, you become lighter and work on your energy level in countless ways. Feel the fatigue that leaves your body in a transformative energy to turn positive infinity.
Daily group lessons
Following private lesson on reservation
Wednesday afternoons free
Friday concert at the church of Orsennes at 15:00
The first part of the day is spent on meditation, warming the voice and seeking connection between body and voice.
In this, pure sounds like Mantras can guide us on our way.
The second part of the morning is worked on repertoire, in which everyone can find his or her challenge. We sing pieces from all over the world, where multi-part settings are certainly not shunned.
Private singing lessons
There is room for individual accompaniment as well as duo, trio and quartet accompaniment in the afternoon. You can sign up for that separately. Specific questions can then be addressed. Cost 50 euros per hour.
Sadhaka inspires you to develop creatively and spiritually. A unique experience that you can think of with a smile for a long time to come.

The workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to sing, even for those who think they can’t sing for whatever reason. Everyone pushes his or her boundaries in a work in which contact exercises, singing as a connecting factor and body-oriented exercises are a part.
Some of the singers come from the “Sing for Your Life” choirs, which Anne-Marie leads. These are choirs for people who have (been) confronted with cancer, directly or indirectly through someone in their vicinity. People with a special life story, with a huge deep love for life, and who celebrate it to the fullest. It makes this week special, palpable in extra depth and connection. Another part of the singers does not come from these choirs, so it is a mixed group.
Anne-Marie studied Singing, School Music and Choral Direction at the Conservatory. She then trained for body work therapist and voice therapy.
Working in the Cancer in Pictures Foundation and giving workshops throughout Europe, she seeks the challenge of the human voice to surprise people in their unprecedented possibilities.
Her motto: “I live because I sing” is her main motivation for her work.
Harrie Herfst, pianist, arranger and composer is the ultimate accompanist, providing every song and emotion with the right harmony. He is also conductor of Chor für’s Leben-Gelsenkirchen and only choirs in the Netherlands.
A response from a participant who took the course
When I heard about the singing week with Anne-Marie, my heart opened. I didn’t know her then. From the first exercise, soul contact was made between each other in the group. No defense possible. Tears flow. Again and again, contact with initial strangers goes right to your heart. Everything around you falls away and between all the beautiful resonances you experience a sacred silence in which you are one with the other, with all the beautiful people in the room. Because you only see pure beauty in each. And Anne-Marie facilitates that encounter, for she herself embodies that love for each other, for all that is. In that light she takes you, in that land of unconditional love for yourself and for the other. I am still deeply moved by the gift of this group.
