World Choir Games 2018
In the summer of 2018, CONSONUS Vocal Ensemble will have the opportunity to represent Switzerland at the World Choir Games in Tshwane (South Africa). The World Choir Games is an international choir festival that takes place every two years on different continents. The event is based on the Olympic ideal of bringing people and peoples together in a peaceful manner and in fair competition. On the one hand the competition, on the other hand the singing together in the center. In addition to the competition performances, the choir has the opportunity to organize various friend concerts with choirs from all over the world.
CONSONUS Vokalensemble has qualified directly for the CHAMPIONS Competition due to its strong performance at the Swiss Choir Competition 2017 and thus can compete with the best choirs in the world. In addition to the choir category “mixed chamber choirs” CONSONUS can compete in two other categories, namely in the categories “Musica sacra a cappella” and “Spiritual”.
In the category Mixed Chamber Choirs, CONSONUS will present some of the pearls of Swiss choral music. The song ‘La-haut sur la montagne’ is a potpourri of Swiss folk songs in all national languages. So CONSONUS also contributes to bringing Swiss choral music out into the world.
