Report Jan. 2013

In the centre of this year is the organization of two big events with the congolesian musicians and the professional musicians of the German radio television station (WDR).

The group of the orchestra is planning common concerts in the Congo in summer 2013, while our group of the choir is advancing to organize a tourney to Europe in December 2013, with concerts at Cologne, Berlin and Brussels.

For this purpose four professional singers will travel to Kinshasa in February once again, to give an intense choir-workshop for preparation.

Unfortunately we won´t be able to take the whole choir to Europe, since we simply don´t have the financial resources. So a group of 36 congolesian singers will come to join our professional choir. Everybody is very, very excited about this event!

We are looking forward to see everybody again and to continue our work.

Our singing lessons get rooted and we recognized at our workshop in November 2012, that the knowledge of singing-technique, healthy voice-caring and right interpretation is growing continually.

The quite new founded children choir has started to act on stage within some concerts. They are still very shy, but they do a great job!

We really have to find more fitting scores; they have nearly nothing for children.

If anybody has a good idea for French children choir music, please write us!

Thanks for your interest!
