Group Creativity: Mapping the Creative Process of a Cappella Choirs in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom Using the Musical Creativities Framework
Wai Chen, Jason Chi
Music Education Research, v20 n1 p59-70 2018
A cappella is a musical performance genre with a long history. Although many people compose and arrange a cappella works, the connection between a cappella and musical creativity has not yet been considered. This study examines the background of the musical creativities framework [Burnard, P. 2012. "Musical Creativities in Practice." Oxford: Oxford University Press.]. Based on interviews conducted with two professional cappella groups in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, it uses this framework to map the creative process of a cappella. Furthermore, it provides insights to music teachers, a cappella lovers and performance group members, and especially to those who compose and arrange a cappella pieces and organise a cappella groups in both schools and communities.
