I am posting this announcement because a friend of mine, conductor Andreas Klucker is coming with his choir from Switzerland to sing (together with many other singers from US) at the world premiere of my piece “A PRAYER FOR MOTHER EARTH” at Carnegie Hall (NY) on May 28. The choir is seeking concert opportunities in the NYC area. Here the original announcement:
A Swiss choir is coming to New York soon. incantanti is an ensemble of young and ambitioned students between the age of 16 and 25 from Grisons in the east of Switzerland. Founded in 2002 and working on various projects every year, we have gained a broad repertoire. The range from our projects goes from madrigals to baroque and romantic music to modern choir compositions, from musical and pop to folksongs from all over the world.
A special focus we lay on local folksongs in Romansh, a language of our region, spoken by less than 1% of the Swiss people. After different successful competitions and festivals such as the European Youth Choir Festival in Basel (Switzerland) or the European Music Festival for the Youth in Neerpelt (Belgium) in which we ended up winning the “1st prize cum laude” we now have the unique opportunity to sing in New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall. We have been invited by the world-famous composer Ivo Antognini to be part of the choir for the premiere of his composition “A Prayer for Mother Earth” and we will be staying in New York from Mai 24th (Tuesday) to Mai 30st (Monday).
We are further looking forward to possibilities during our stay to additionally have our own performances or be part of concerts of others as we are delighted and carry out Swiss music to the United States and thereby culturally represent Switzerland abroad. We would be proud to give our American listeners the unique opportunity to listen to Romansh song and enchant them with the sound of our various a cappella music.
