Sing Along Concert "ON TOUR" Barcelona

May 29 - June 2, 2019 Barcelona, Spain

Verdi’s Requiem at Palau de la Mùsica Catalana

Starting with the Sing Along Projects of the Rundfunkchor Berlin, the idea of these 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 from 2014. Performances of the major works of the choral symphonic literature were followed by a growing group, nowadays reaching around 1.500 singers.

The highlights of the ON TOUR series are 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 2015 on, this tradition has been part of the event series "World Festival Singers".

The next Sing Along Project ON TOUR will be 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.

"I joined for the first time, 2 friends of mine got me hooked on it! I want to thank you! It was so wonderful, I didn’t dare hope that the conductor would guide 1000 singers so well! This resulted from the preparation of each individual singer, the motivation, concentration and also the charisma of Simon Halsey! A wonderful singing experience!"

Ulrike Kiesselbach, Germany (Sing Along Vienna 2016)
