What we do

Event

With our extensive experience and original and professional sound, we provide your event with that extra special something! We will gladly tailor our performance to suit your specific needs. Besides a performance at lunch or dinner, we would love to do something involving your staff – perhaps a Eurovision-type performance which culminates with a song about your company? Or how about a “competition” in the style of Battle of the Choirs?

Concert/Festival

We have a broad range of repertoire and will tailor it to match your event, for example focusing on jazz or folk music.

Workshop

Most of Baravox’s members are trained pedagogues in different vocal specialties. We hold lectures, workshops, and master classes in jazz and pop singing for choirs, folk music, beatboxing, and rhythm and grooves in arranging for choirs and vocal groups. If your choir or vocal group needs a new “spark,” we would love to do a workshop with you! Maybe even follow up with a combined concert?
