Sing Along Concert “ON TOUR” Barcelona
29 May 2019 – 02 Jun 2019, Barcelona
Starting with the Sing Along Projects of the Rundfunkchor Berlin, the idea of these fascinating cooperation between professional and amateur singers became very soon an international highlight. After a guest performance in 2010 at the Aspendos Festival in Turkey, the project went ON TOUR regularly from 2014. Performances of the major works of the choral symphonic literature were followed by a growing group, nowadays reaching around 1.500 singers. The highlights of the ON TOUR series are the performance of Mozart‘s „Requiem“ in 2014 in Budapest, Schubert’s „Mass Nr. 6“ in 2016 in Vienna, Haydn’s „The Creation“ in 2017 in Riga and in 2018 Händel’s „Messiah“ in Paris. From 2015 on, this tradition has been part of the event series “World Festival Singers”.The next Sing Along Project ON TOUR will be the performance of Verdi‘s „Messa da Requiem“ in Barcelona together with the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the choirs of Orfeó Català, conducted by Simon Halsey at the legendary Palau de la Música Catalana.
