The Voices of Europe Project: Finally live

The long wait was worth it: on Saturday our choir The Voices of Europe Project finally had its premiere. Our singers with different European backgrounds musically spread the message ‘Europe’s diversity is everywhere’ in two special performances.

It was a great honor for our choir to personally meet Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Elke Büdenbender as well as the chairman of Tu was für Europa, Martin Schulz. The Federal President had just given his welcome speech on the main stage – just a few minutes after our choir made its debut on stage in front of a live audience.

Thousands of visitors came to the Federal President’s Citizens Festival in the park of Schloss Bellevue – a very nice setting for our choir to present our ‘European Medley in 12 Languages’. Under the excellent musical direction of Lili Sommerfeld and with the great choreography of Anne Grabowski, the audience was encouraged to sing along to the songs in the various European languages. And that’s what the choir is all about: getting easy access to European languages ​​through singing. And so to Europe. Our chairman Martin Schulz made this clear once again at the reception on the day of the premiere.

The second performance on the day of the premiere was also a complete success: from Schloss Bellevue we went straight to the Sony Center on Potsdamer Platz, where the first street concert by The Voices of Europe Project took place. Many passers stopped by and joined in the European medley. A nice experience after our choir could only rehearse for two years due to the pandemic.

Such a choir of singers with different European backgrounds would not be possible without strong support. A big thank you therefore goes to Deutsche Bahn, which has supported the project from the start. Many thanks also to: Deutscher Sparkassen- und Giroverband e.V. (main sponsor), Google and Hotel Berlin, Berlin for their support during the performances on Saturday.

The day of the premiere was a brilliant start for further concerts planned, with which the choir wants to reach people in public places with its sing-along medley. As soon as new performances are confirmed, they will be published on The Voices of Europe Project website.
