New highlight: Sing Along Concert „On Tour“ Barcelona 2019
Sing Verdi’s “Messa da Requiem” in the legendary Palau de la Música Catalana
A new highlight has just been added to the INTERKULTUR event calendar: The Sing Along Concert “On Tour” in 2019 will inspire singers from all over the world in the city of Barcelona.
In 2019 fellow singers will join the performance of Verdi‘s „Messa da Requiem“ in Barcelona together with the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the choirs of Orfeó Català, conducted by Simon Halsey at the legendary Palau de la Música Catalana.
As always the singers will meet for three days of intensive rehearsals culminating in the final concert performance. The Sing Along Concert 2019 is being planned to take place from May 27 to June 2, 2019 including arrival and departure day. Registration starts on June 1, 2018. More information is already available at www.interkultur.com/Barcelona2019, also a pre-registration is possible there.
Starting with the popular Sing Along Projects of the Rundfunkchor Berlin, the idea of this fascinating cooperation between professional and amateur singers became very soon an international highlight. After a guest performance in 2010 at the Aspendos Festival in Turkey, the project went ON TOUR regularly since 2014. Performances of the major works of the choral symphonic literature were followed by a growing group, nowadays reaching around 1.500 keen singers.
The highlights of the ON TOUR series were the performance of Mozart‘s „Requiem“ in 2014 in Budapest, Schubert’s „Mass Nr. 6“ in 2016 in Vienna, Haydn’s „The Creation“ in 2017 in Riga and in 2018 Händel’s „Messiah“ in Paris. From 2016 on, this tradition got its own ensemble name: the WORLD FESTIVAL SINGERS.
