The HSK program “The Bread Tree Regime” invites you to get involved

Hochsauerland district.
The HSK cultural program “The Bread Tree Regime” invites you to the world premiere of a new forest song created in the region. Still need to sing along.

A forest is a source of sound – not only the sound it makes in response to weather and change and the sounds of the animals that live in it, but also the sound of stories and songs written by people over generations. It is. We shape our landscapes, our landscapes shape us; We live with our forests and they live with us.

What will happen to us when our landscape changes and our forest becomes sick? We are looking for singers of all voices, genders and ages. The Project Choir will premiere British musician Ben Osborne’s newly composed Forest Song, which was inspired by the landscape of Savarland and its changes in our time and whose text was developed in collaboration with the people of the area.

Test weekend at HSK

The piece is part of the exhibition “The Bread Tree Regime” in Arnsberg, Brilon and Schmallenberg in the summer of 2023. The Project Choir is directed by Susan Lamott, along with the Music Director. A trial weekend will be held on June 10th and 11th at the Civic Center Old Synagogue from 11am to 5pm.
