Choriosity - Who are we?
"Choriosity" is an ambitious a cappella pop choir for young people in Ulm and is part of the local YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association). 120 amateur singers aged 18 to 30 are convinced that having fun and learning to sing at a high level are intimately connected, so everybody is welcome to join the choir!
This project is a unique musical opportunity - A 10 days concert trip for a young, modern and motivated choir.
Choriosity - What do we want?
In the spring of 2016 we were invited to participate in the "Total Vocal" project led by Deke Sharon ("Pitch Perfect") including a final concert at Carnegie Hall in New York. We want to make this dream come true.
Our goal is to share our idea of modern a cappella choir, bringing along 95 young people! We want to meet other international choirs, and develop our musical and personal skills in a multicultural environment. And: Sing in Carnegie Hall - a once in a lifetime opportunity!
We are working hard to take part in the "Total Vocal" project at Carnegie Hall and impress the audience with our choir energy. Deke Sharon, an award-winning music arranger, singer and composer invited us to work together with the best choirs from all over the world. After the end of the official program we are going to give concerts in collaboration with local choirs, YMCAs and learn more about the USA, its culture and people. We are looking forward to this trip and we expect it to make us more professional in singing and more united as a choir. The trip will take place on April 4-14 2017.
Why should you support this project?
The story of our choir shows that motivation and hard work can lead young people loving to sing together.
- To give 95 students, interns and young adults the opportunity to sing with international a cappella groups together. We need your support for this dream to come true.
- It is totally amazing that an amateur choir from a small German city was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall. And only because of our YouTube videos.
- Most members of the choir are university students and they are not able to earn the money needed to financially support such a huge project on their own.
Choriosity - What do we need?
We are looking for choir and music lovers, entrepreneurs and visionaries. Your support is of high importance for us.
What do we need the money for?
While airplane tickets and housing are covered by participants, there are still a lot of expenses: participation fee for the project, choir sheets and transportation.
We will surely not spend money on sightseeing. Any money left will be spent on our further projects.
Help us make this dream come true!
