England’s master composer and his choral heritage

John Rutter presents his works at the European Choir Games 2019

The choral community all over the world cherishes the works of the British composer and INTERKULTUR’s Honorary Artistic President, John Rutter. From “For The Beauty Of The Earth “ over “Magnificat” up to “This is the Day”, there is hardly an INTERKULTUR event which does not feature Rutter songs on its playlist in one or more categories.

And now his followers have the chance to meet and work with him in person: At the Grand Prix of Nations Gothenburg 2019 & 4th European Choir Games John Rutter will hold a workshop as a 90-minute session, where everyone will have a chance to sing and get to know some of his choral pieces, sacred and secular. John will speak about the music and offer hints and tips for performance. Bring your voices - Music is provided!

The workshop Meet the composer: John Rutter introduces his music will take place on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at 10:00 h at the Artisten – Lindgrensalen (Fågelsången 1, 412 56 Gothenburg). 100 choral music lovers can join the event, which is held in English. And in case you can’t make it to the workshop, simply enjoy the wide range of concerts, additional events and performances of 138 choirs from 36 nations.
