This concert does not only present the results of the impuls Academy program for Vocalists, coached by Cantando Admont for the first time, but it also features a collaboration in between the vocalists and IEMA-Ensemble 2022/23. Not only did they work together on Beat Furrer´s Akusmata under the guidance and conducting of the composer, but also a Call for Scores was set up to connect them with young composer participants for readings, leading to a performance in the case of composer Emanuele Savagnone. With compositions of two more young composers of the impuls Academy, having been selected at another Call for scores for IEMA only, the program will also hold purely instrumental pieces.
