About the project

Ever pictured yourself onstage at one of the world’s most famous concert halls?

Make that dream a (virtual) reality!

Join conductor Simon Carrington and CHORALSPACE to learn Handel's most famous coronation anthem, Zadok the Priest

After the success of our Global Ode to Joy - Live in Vienna project with Marin Alsop and the Wiener Singakademie, we're delighted to announce our second project with hybrid rehearsals

In this 3 week project, you'll get the unique experience of joining the CHORALSPACE Festival Chorus in their rehearsals with Simon Carrington, as they prepare for the Choral Celebrations concert series at the Berlin Philharmonie.

And in our special final video, you'll see yourself virtually performing in one of the most distinguished and prestigious venues in the world - the Grand Hall at the Berlin Philharmonie - filling this golden hall with glorious choral sound!

This project is NOW LIVE! Get involved!

FAQs

  • I'm unable to join the live rehearsals, can I watch them back later?

    Yes! All of our projects are streamed live to Youtube. You can join in live in Zoom or on Youtube and all rehearsals will be made available to watch back as many times as you like. (usually within 24 hours)

  • Do I have to submit a video? Can I just take part in the rehearsals?

    Not if you don’t want to! It’s absolutely fine for you to just come along to rehearsals and take part in the process without submitting a video. If you’re just camera-shy, don’t worry! You can submit an audio-only recording if you prefer.

  • I've not sung in an in-person choir before and don't have much/any choir experience, can I still take part?

    Absolutely! We provide all the materials you need to learn the music for our projects, including the score, voice-part specific rehearsals, and learning tracks. With members from over 75 countries with every possible experience level we make sure that whichever way you learn there are the resources you need.
