We were delighted to welcome the brilliant vocal supergroup Accent for a masterclass.

The group, who include Jean-Baptiste (“JB”) Craipeau (France), Simon Åkesson (Sweden), Danny Fong (Canada), Andrew Kesler (Canada), James Rose (UK), and Evan Sanders (USA), visited ICMP alongside on a recent trip to the UK alongside performances at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall and 229 The Venue.

Commenting on the group's success, Andrew Kesler said: "All of us do music full-time in other capacities, either singing or playing instruments in other groups so to a certain extent, this really is a passion project where we can focus on the music." 

It turns out that if you’re really passionate about your music and show it to the world, you’ll find an audience. You’ll stand out as something unique if you just try and be you."


Meeting online, Accent are six brilliant singers, arrangers and instrumentalists. As their website says, 'Accent is a collaboration of musicians from around the world looking to bring you the best in a cappella and jazz. Nothing says "harmony" like coming together across international borders.'

They hosted a great interactive masterclass with our students showcasing their range and versatile mix of styles that has made them a global sensation.
