The Genetic Choir will sing a concert at sunrise in the Muziekgebouw aan het Ij in Amsterdam on
Sunday morning, October 11th, 2015
and you are invited to sing with us!
The concert is part of the 24h Resonance concert, curated by Merlijn Twaalfhoven, with the motto to experience the power of music and support active music making – together – beyond the common separation of amateurs and professionals. Merlijn gave various entrepreneurs of the voice a Carte Blanche to fill an hour or two with their approach to vocal music in this 24 hour non-stop concert.
From 7am to 8am, the moment when the night ends and the light returns in the all-glass foyer of the Muziekgebouw overlooking the water, the Genetic Choir Ensemble will lead an instant composition concert titled “Sounds of the City / De ontwakende stad”.
Subsequently, from 8-9:30am, Genetic Choir singer Yinske Silva will curate a concert of World Music, with singers and songs from every corner of the world. At 9:30, the Genetic Choir Ensemble will join the world music singers to culminate the morning into an instant composed all-genres&styles musical climax. It will be grand, it will be crazy & it will be beautiful! 🙂
