We are currently preparing for a concert in June, and unfortunately aren't accepting new members until the concert is over on the 21st. We would love to have you afterwards though!
Hi! My name is Jared from the US and I'm a voice teacher, professional classical singer, and voice actor here in Berlin. Through this meetup group I've been offering voice lessons for the past several months and I thought it would be nice to have a choir for the voice lesson group to meet together and just sing.
The rehearsals are led in English, but it is important to me that German speaking people feel welcome and questions in German are encouraged. I hope that this choir will help connect the German and English speaking corners of Berlin.
Here is the official new schedule:
Monday: German voice class at 20:00
Tuesday: Group singing choir at 20:00
Thursday: English voice class at 20:00
There is no recommended donation. The choir is supported by the voice classes on Monday and Thursday and by people who study voice with me privately. I will provide tea, so if you take some, please consider donating a euro or two.
I'm more of a voice teacher than a choir director, but I have experience singing in professional choirs over the last 15 or so years, as well as some community choir conducting experience and feel comfortable in front of a choir. Anyone of any experience level is welcome, and there is no mandatory attendance.
Here are the songs we are currently preparing if you want to listen:
The Road Home SATB: Stephen Paulus
Somewhere over the Rainbow SB: Arranged by me
(no youtube link, it's a new song!)
Look forward to seeing you there!
