V.O.I.C.E – Pop Choir
V.O.I.C.E – Pop Choir
You already have choir and singing experience and are looking for a group of like-minded people who are just as interested in really good “vocal pop” as you are? The whole thing on an advanced level and with a lot of possibilities to let off steam in singing – from big concerts with professional light & sound technology, to flash mobs up to singing weeks & ensemble projects… And not to forget – besides all the good music the community should not miss out either?
Then our “V.O.I.C.E – Pop Choir” is perfect for you!
The V.O.I.C.E – Pop Choir is our biggest choir with currently about 100 singers who are working on their vocal pop arts at an advanced level. Groove and fun are definitely very important here – although a certain amount of personal commitment is also required.
We take care to comply with security measures regarding the corona virus during our concerts and rehearsals.
We have the following activities planned for the summer semester 2021:
- Professional recording project and music video in April
- Workshops included into the rehearsals, such as vocal training, rhythm training, … (also doable virtually)
- V.O.I.C.E summer concert on the 11th June 2021 in the ANKER-SAAL – Should the concert not take place due to the corona virus, then a different project will be carried out (e.g. a flashmob or a recording/music video project)
- The repertoire is a colorful mix of summer pop hits, such as Dua Lipa’s „Don’t start now“.
Auditions / Dates
The applications for the summer semester 2021 are open! Before attending a rehearsal, please read our rehearsal rules and corona FAQs first.
An audition is necessary to participate in the V.O.I.C.E POP CHOIR.
- Learn a song of your choice.
- Accompany yourself, bring a bluetooth box or the sheet music for the song so that we can accompany you.
- The audition will take place in a safe environment and only in very small groups (definitely not in front of the entire choir). The point is for you to have fun and for us to get to know each other.
DISCLAIMER: If you should notice during the first rehearsal that you do not want to sing with us this semester after all, you have the option to cancel by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 4, 2021. After that date, 50% of your choir contribution will be charged as a cancellation fee.
