Concert Choir: Classic Beginners
This is a choir for singers who like classical music but do not have much previous musical experience. Easier choral literature is sung and the focus lies on teaching singing techniques, sight reading and harmonic comprehension. This choir is for beginners who want to (re-) explore the wonderful world of classical music. A voice check is necessary to join the group but no sight reading test is required. The age limit for this choir is 30 years.
On 11th December Masterworks such as the “Hallelujah” by Handel as well as works by Bach and Mendelssohn will be performed. In spring 2019 the Polovtsian dances by Borodin will be sung in the concert series “The World of Opera” and in June “West Side Story” by Bernstein will be performed in an open air concert.
In the summer term 2018 the choir sang motets by Anton Bruckner, Rheinberger and Rachmaninov. Last December concerts of Franz Schubert’s Mass in G Major were performed.
Rehearsals: Monday 8 – 10 p.m.
