It’s Genetic Choir CONCERT Month

We are starting on a month full of Genetic Choir concerts!

And actually, we are looking at a row of concerts that couldn’t be more diverse. You would think we planned this to showcase the various areas of the performing arts where the Genetic Choir is active (but we didn’t, honestly)  🙂

From the cutting-edge of music programming research to a soundtrack made for a theatre piece , from blending with fine art at a gallery to giving a big Church Concert with Bulgarian singers and organ to celebrate the release of our new CD: Church Songs for the 21st Century.

Take your pick!

(1) IJSBEER PosterA3_zonder_randPremiere: Ijsbeer in de Tropen (Ice bear in the jungle)

A puppet/object piece about an ice bear who gets lost on the ocean and ends up in the jungle. The piece is both about the feeling of going on adventure and the longing for home.

With a soundtrack created+sung by the Genetic Choir: all natural noises (pole winds, storms, waves/beach, jungle+apes) are done by human voices, to astonishing results.

More info about the performance is here.

For children from 3 years upward.  Dutch language skills not required. Reserve tickets here.

Amstelveens Poppentheater, Wolfert van Borsselenweg 85a, Amstelveen
