Amateur singers and hobby musicians, be they soloists or ensembles, visitors or locals – they can all participate in the Sommer Music Festival.
After it could not take place due to the pandemic in 2020 rehearsals and performance of Verdi's "Prisoners' Chorus of Nabucco" will unite regional vocalists and instrumentalists, festival artists and festival guests this year. On Friday morning, August 5th, 11:11 a.m. the results will be performed in "Everyman's Verdi!" publicly. Admission to all sessions is free.
Verdi's work will be the central but not the sole focus of our (almost) daily choir sessions. Alexander Lüken will be including additional works that don’t overtax amateurs, but enrich their artistic experience. Even if you decide not to join the performance on August 5th, you’re welcome to join any and all of the choir sessions, the admission is free. Everyman’s Choir sings from August 1st – 5th, from 9:09 – 10:10 a.m. at the St. Johannis Church in Hitzacker. You will receive the scores at the first rehearsal on 1.8!
