The Vivid Voices choir and the Coro da camera giovanile dell’Emilia Romagna in concert, Wednesday 10 April at Palazzo d’Accursio, Cappella Farnese.
The event is promoted within the network of the Unesco Creative Cities of Music, which includes both cities, and it represents a concrete example of how the international network encourages the sharing of projects and the birth of new collaborations.
Vivid Voices is the jazz choir of the University of Music, Theater and Communication of the German city, is composed of 45 students and is one of the best vocal groups in Europe, able to combine typical Northern European ambient sounds with influences coming from the pop, swing and modern jazz.
The Vivid Voices perform on stage touching and lively arrangements, some of which are personally written by choir members.
Under the direction of the award-winning jazz singer Claudia Burghard, and accompanied by choreographies and improvisations, the listener is transported to a new dimension, where music is experienced in a unique and personal way.
The winners of the “German Choir Competition” in 2002 and 2014, and of the “International Aarhus Vocal Festival” in Denmark, in 2006 and 2015, the Vivid Voices have collected a large amount of prizes, tours and concerts in Europe, United States and Africa.
The Coro giovanile dell’Emilia Romagna, born by the will of Associazione Emiliano Romagnola Cori, is composed of choristers from the regional territory aged between 18 and 35 years. Directed by Ilaria Cavalca, brilliant pianist of chamber ensembles and director of the Chorus of White Voices Don Dossetti and of the Vocinsieme chorus of Gattatico, the youth group enjoys the collaboration of Maestro Edoardo Ponzi at the vipraphone. The choir repertoire encompasses multiple styles, in order to capture the different sensibilities of its members, in a context of mutual respect and listening. Although born in the near February 2017, the choir has already performed successfully at the AERCO regional assembly in Parma, at the prestigious CantaBO Choral Festival and at the Roffi Festival.
