On 24. July 2016, The Berlin Pop Choir collaborated with artisits Isabella Fürnkäs and Carina Erdmann as part of the Udk Rundgang. SIREN was a site specific performance project organized by students of the University of the Arts in Berlin (Udk) at Ernst-Reuter-Platz – a central traffic island with a huge water fountain.

For this unique performance, we sang a specially adapted and improvised version of BPC Director Lyndsey Cockwell’s arrangement of the Malaria! classic: ‘Kaltes Klares Wasser,‘ and actually got in the water and performed a choreography. There has certainly never been a BPC performance like it!

Berlin Pop Choir summer performance 2016

 

Lyndsey Cockwell presented the Berlin Pop Choir and Ensemble summer performance on 14. June 2016. We worked hard for 10 weeks and were ready to show everyone what we could do! Exploding with energy, the two choirs gave the choral scene a shot in the arm with their original, contemporary arrangements, heavenly harmonies, gorgeous grooves – and their love of dressing up!

The power and moving sounds of around 200 performers singing for the pure joy of it was as infectious as ever and the Berlin Pop Choir sang ‘Last nite‘ by The Strokes, ‘Kaltes Klares Wasser‘ by Malaria!, ‘Fade to grey‘ by Visage and ‘Praise you‘ by Fatboy Slim. Hear for yourself with the youtube playlist above.

Berlin Pop Choir summer trip 2016!

BPCSummerTrip2016

The Berlin Pop Choir took their second summer trip in July 2016 to Schloss Noer near the Ostsee. A weekend dedicated to sun, sand, sea and most importantly singing!

There was morning workshops and afternoon 3-4 part harmony singing in the Schloss’ beautiful roter saal, and the singing didn’t stop there! we had road trip bus songs, camp fire songs and sunset singing on the beach. Everyone had a fantastic time.
