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 February is a guest appearance at Fabrik in Altona. As part of the Hamburg International Music Festival in May 2019, the choir takes part in an orchestral concert in the Grand Hall.

Rehearsal day & time: Mondays, 17:00-19:00
Rehearsal venue: Elbphilharmonie Kaistudio and Laeiszhalle Studio E
First autumn rehearsal: 16 September 2019

Songs of the Silk Road

for Teenagers Aged 16+ and Adults

In jeder Saison gibt es ein größeres Projekt, bei dem verschiedenste Menschen aus allen Ecken Hamburgs gemeinsam etwas Neues erschaffen. In dieser Saison geht es dabei, passend zum Osterfestival im April, um die Seidenstraße, also die zweitausend Jahre alte Handelsroute zwischen Europa und Ostasien.

In einem großen Community-Projekt werden in mehreren Stadtteilzentren Lieder aus den Ländern entlang der Seidenstraße gesammelt, ausprobiert und neu zusammengesetzt. Es entstehen mehrere neue Chöre, die schließlich alle in der Elbphilharmonie zusammentreffen und die neue Komposition zusammen mit einem Orchester und einem Gastensemble im Großen Saal aufführen.

Concert: 11 Apr 2020 | Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall
Advance booking from 22 October 2019
