Amateur singers and hobby musicians, be they soloists or ensembles, visitors or locals – they can all participate in the Sommer Music Festival.
Assuming the pandemic rules permit, we’ll be reinstating our popular “Everyman’s Choir” this year. Director Alexander Lüken is putting together a repertoire, based on Schubert’s wonderful “Holy, Holy, Holy” Sanctus from the German Mass D872, for enjoyable sessions uniting regional vocalists and instrumentalists, festival artists and festival guests. On Friday morning, August 6th, the results will be performed publicly. Admission to all sessions is free. Application forms for instrumentalists will be posted here in the near future.
Schubert’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 6th, you’re welcome to join any and all of the choir sessions. Everyman’s Choir sings from August 2nd – 6th, from 9:09 – 10:10 a.m. Venue tba.
If your hobby involves a musical instrument, we invite you to participate in Everyman’s Schubert and join the rehearsals that the Festival will be organizing. All instruments are welcome!
Festival artists’ classes: Aside from our Everyman’s Schubert project, amateur musicians can sign up for instruction with Festival artists. The classes will take place from August 2nd – 6th and the scheduling of the 60-minute sessions as well as the choice of works will be individually arranged depending on the number of interested participants. Price (Euros per hour): Solo instruction 40,–; Duet, Trio, Quartet 60,–; Quintet and beyond 75,–.
Particularly experienced singers can sign up for a vocal ensemble that will join Alexander Lüken to work on more ambitious a cappella pieces. Sessions of one hour every day from August 2nd – 6th. Total cost in Euros (for 5 days): 50,– Euros per person, members of the Society of Friends of the Summer Festival get in free.
Give us a call or send us a mail or a letter so we can get in touch with you with information, rehearsal schedules or scores for the Schubert performance.
