Vocal Heroes choir project

“LIFE”: Education choir project with the Vocal Heroes

A modern oratorio about a tragic death: Jonathan Dove’s There was a Child is an homage to the son of friends who died in a diving accident in Thailand at the age of 19. The composer traces the panorama of a young life – charming impertinence, carefree playfulness, childlike worries, youthful thirst for adventure. In this choir project of the Education Programme, the Vocal Heroes youth choir, amateur singers, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker and guests share the stage of the Philharmonie.
