That was so delightful with the Armenians, and also with Tamar yesterday. The way these musicians teach their songs warms my heart.
My heartfelt thanks for the idea, the organization, for everything!

Born out of the restrictions of the first Corona lockdown, ChorOnline for me is an antidote to isolation and closed borders.

ChorOnline cannot replace the singing in harmony in a choir, but it opens up new possibilities. Everyone can learn the songs in his or her own way, in a kind of protected environment, and yet together with others.
I work as a music therapist in geriatric institutions, where I regularly hear how centrally important expression with and in one’s own voice is.

In addition, this project supports artists in other countries in continuing to practice the specific music of their cultures through presentations and online performances, while other performances and travel had to be cancelled. Thanks to the donations of the ChorOnline participants the musicians also receive much-needed financial support.

ChorOnline has created a new kind of musical entity: you sing for yourself in your home, but simultaneously with others and in the awareness of being part of a choir with 30 or 40 participants from many different countries. This broadens the horizon and can produce a feeling of inner freedom and peace.
