do you want to sing in an international choir - from home, and under the Tuition of singers from different cultures?


Today's technology makes it possible!



- A transnational singing project

When the Corona pandemic started in spring 2020, making physical encounters impossible, technology suddenly offered a new possibility: The "joint" singing in a virtual "choir".

The transnational singing project ChorOnline offers the possibility for international participants to regularly take part in virtual singing workshops, lead by singers from various cultures.

We sing traditional songs from Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Macedonia and Bulgaria, among others. The courses are taught by musical experts of traditional songs from their homelands. Based on the principles of Applied Ethnomusicology, the course leaders receive an income, which is entirely funded by donations from the workshop participants.



- streaming concerts

ConcertOnline is the streaming offer of ChorOnline. Here professional musicians and lovers of traditional music perform live for us, directly from their homes.



- music in cultural context

CaféOnline is an additional offer from ChorOnline in collaboration with the international folk dance and dance music club VTI from Switzerland . This event takes place about once a month and applies the same conditions as as the ChorOnline singing workshops. It offers traditional musicians from various cultures the opportunity to share their knowledge about the musical treasures of their countries in an attractive and interactive presentational format.

The main focus of CaféOnline is put on the cultural and social contexts in which music and singing take place, and it thus fosters intercultural understanding.

ChorOnline received an award from the city of Winterthur as Corona Cultural Project.
