ear friends of the Zürcher Sing-Akademie,

 

welcome to TREASURES FROM THE PAST.

 

 

I am Franziska Brandenberger, and for all those who don't know me yet, let me introduce myself very shortly: as a trained singer and cultural manager, and I have a somewhat special double role at the Zürcher Sing-Akademie. I have been an alto in the core choir since 2015, and since 2018 I have taken on the PR and marketing role in the office.

 

My work often gives me the opportunity to browse through our image and sound archives. Not all of these recordings have been made professionally, but many of them offer wonderful, exciting and sometimes very cheerful memories that I would like to share with you - but also with our singers! I showed them excerpts of our material and they told me what they remember from the individual projects and what happened behind the scenes during our work!

 

From April on you will find a new episode of TREASURES FROM THE PAST here every week - have fun!

 

 

Episode No. 1: Concert tour to Taiwan and China 2017

 

In August 2017, we were guests at the Taipei International Choral Festival in the gigantic National Concert Hall in Taipei - a great honour, as only selected choirs from all over the world get invited every year! After two more concerts in Taiwan we also visited the People's Republic of China and our twin city Kunming.

 

 

 

 

 

Episode No 2: Summer Serenade 2018

 

Im Freien zu singen - wir haben Mendelssohn beim Wort genommen. Im Innenhof des Klosters Muri präsentierten wir im Juni 2018 ein vielseitiges A capella- Programm unter der Leitung von Florian Helgath. Unsere Kernchormitglieder Franziska Gündert und Tiago Oliveira plaudern aus dem Nähkästchen, ebenso unsere Projektleiterin Laura Cantagalli.
