Do you agree that singing in a choir is not the same as singing together? Open Opera Ukraine invites you to put this to the test.
If you have long dreamed of singing, but couldn't make the leap, the baroque choir will rid you of fear, and your voice of trembling.
"The choir is a prototype of a perfect society, based on a single intent and aligned breath, a society, in which it is important to hear another, to listen to each other".
Georgiy Struve, composer and choirmaster
Singing in a choir is:
Not scary. Everyone's voice is supported by the voices of their colleagues.
A chance to discover your abilities and develop your voice.
Training of your musical hearing and breathing technique.
A productive way to spend your free time with family or friends.
Singing in a choir nivellates personalities
Time to bring down the stereotypes!
Every voice in the choir is unique and has the space to resonate and present itself.
Singing without a music education is impossible
Singing in a choir is, first and foremost, energetic exchange and mutual support.
A bright timbre is necessary to sing in a choir
Contrary to the misconception, soloists often find singing in a choir difficult, as it demands tenderness, not an explosion.
Performing music together doesn't just reveal talents, but also grants a freedom of expression. It will be a practice of musical and intellectual development as well as a way to emotionally recharge.
