Chamber choir JIP was founded in 2013, and has grown over the past three years under the artistic leadership of my brother Jonathan and me. Twice a year, a challenging and original acapella program is compiled around socially relevant themes. The programs are often daring and bold. Singers are expected to prepare for the rehearsals at home, and work on singing technique, stage presence, improvisation, and team-building during rehearsals, thus creating a choir with a unique and high quality sound.
