The most direct route to music includes making music yourself. Not everyone has mastered an instrument, but (not only) to start off, your own voice is quite sufficient. It then often turns out to be easy to find a way into the world of classical music. All the better when Simon Halsey, one of the most renowned choral conductors of our time, is available as conductor and presenter as in this Vocal Heroes concert. The Vocal Heroes: they are the more than 200 young singers from Berlin schools who work on concert programmes together with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker. In this case, they will greet the arrival of spring with well-known songs from the international repertoire in a variety of languages. And not only the invited guests from Berlin schools in the Philharmonie are expected to help out: the audience of the Digital Concert Hall is also invited to join in. In addition to interviews with some of the musicians and a communal vocal warm-up, there is the first public appearance of the newly established youth choir for “young people from Berlin and around the world”, plus a band to provide the necessary musical and rhythmic support. Apart from a solo number, this is a concert in which the Vocal Heroes and the audience unite from beginning to end to form a unified ensemble. To prepare for the concert, you can download recordings and the sheet music of folk song classics such as “Alle Vögel sind schon da”, plus other canons and songs. It’s time to welcome in the spring!
