Berlin’s Philharmonic Hall to host global digital choir collaboration

A virtual choir will digitally raise the roof of the Berlin Philharmonie for a groundbreaking performance combining digital and live music in this world-famous concert hall.

CHORALSPACE International Academy for Choral Arts is working with the Stay At Home Choir to allow singers from around the world to perform alongside an in-person choir and orchestra, conducted by Simon Carrington in one of the world’s most prestigious concert halls.

The Stay At Home Choir is a UK-based startup with over 28,000 global singers. The organisation has previously worked with renowned conductor Marin Alsop to create the hybrid Global Ode to Joy – Live in Vienna, and with Sir Karl Jenkins for a performance of The Armed Man. They are now inviting singers to join their latest initiative.

This new collaboration with CHORALSPACE takes the pairing of virtual singing with physical performance a step further than ever before. Singers who submit a video recording will be able to see themselves performing in the hall alongside the CHORALSPACE Festival Chorus and Orchestra in the final performance video, directed by renowned conductor Simon Carrington.

Singers will also get the unique opportunity to join live-streamed rehearsals and seminars led by Simon Carrington, as he prepares the CHORALSPACE Festival Chorus for the Choral Celebrations concert series in Berlin in March.

Zadok the Priest: Live in Berlin starts on Monday 28 February 2022 and rehearsals take place until Friday 18 March.

New singers are always welcome to join the Stay At Home Choir’s global community, and registration is open now:
