„Sing your song“: hr4 choir competition
INTERKULTUR donates the first prize for the winning choir
The radio station hr4 from the state of Hesse in Germany is searching „Hesse’s favorite choir“ and thus started the choir competition „Singt Euren Song“ (engl. „Sing your song“). More than 150 choirs answered the call and sent their application to the hr4. 15 finalists have been announced a few days ago .The winning choir will be awarded a trip to the International Robert Schumann Choir Competition in Zwickau (Germany) – donated by INTERKULTUR.
When selecting the finalists hr4 was incontemplating the music of the choirs, but mainly focused on the people behind – on their enthusiasm, commitment and team spirit. „Singt Euren Song“ wants to show the great choirs and people singing in Hesse and making a difference together.
Starting on Monday, September 11, hr4 introduces every day one of the finalists in hr4 radio and on its website – listeners, fans, family and friends of the choir members can then vote for their favorite choir on the respective day. The choir gaining most of the votes will win the choir trip and join the Robert Schumann Choir Competition in June 2018. The winning choir will be announced on September 29.
More information about the hr4 choir competition, about the details of voting and an overview of the final choirs can be found here (in German).
