Long Night of Singing

Singing is back in fashion: there are around 61,000 amateur choirs with approximately 3.3 million members in Germany alone. The scene is particularly lively and diverse in Hamburg. On 13 June 2020, for the third time, the Elbphilharmonie opens its stages to choirs of all kinds, and invites them to present their programme to a wide audience. Meeting and mingling with other singers is another important aspect of the evening.

In the Grand Hall, the voice artist Andreas Schaerer is joined by all participants for an interactive concert in which they explore the creative possibilities of singing together. Chairing the jury this year is Anne Kohler, professor at the Hochschule für Musik Detmold. The jury will be responsible for selecting the participating choirs and for putting together the project choir.

Choirs from Hamburg and the surrounding area (up to 50km away) are eligible to take part.

Rehearsal: 12 June 2020

Project patron: Haspa Musik Stiftung

Long Night of Singing 2020

Chor zur Welt / World Choir

The Elbphilharmonie’s Chor zur Welt (English: World Choir) was founded in spring 2017 as a project choir for young people from Germany and Syria as part of the »Salām Syria« festival. Since then, it has already given many stirring concerts, and the line-up has also developed further. By now, singing enthusiasts from many different countries make music together.

This season the focus on cultural exchanges continues. Arabic songs meet modern classics from Europe. On the programme in January 2020 is the concert »InterReligio«, which focuses on the topic of »Belief«.
