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 have the following activities planned for the winter semester 2020/21:
- Choir weekend Sept. 2020
- „BALCANTO“ – Opening of the “VOICEMANIA” a capella festival on Nov 6th, 2020
- V.O.I.C.E Christmas concert on Dec 5th, 2020 in the LORELY-SAAL
