Aarhus Vocal Festival (Aarhus, Denmark) invites Jonathan Minkoff, Esq. to lecture on the business aspects of a cappella music.
The week-long vocal festival held May 2013 is widely regarded as one of the world's most prestigious, inspiring visitors from across Europe, as well as a growing number of fans from other continents.
Jens Johansen (Aarhus University and Kor72), Head of Festival and Chairman of the board founded the festival in May 2006 with performances from his rhythmic choir, Vocal Line as well as from Rajaton and The Real Group. The festival occurs once every two years, and in 2011 featured performances from many artists, including Postyr, Basix and Bobby McFerrin.
