New large choir events occupy Friends Arena

– Take the opportunity to sing with Ernman, Körberg and Karlsson

On November 4, all who love to sing welcome to the will Friends Arena and the event We Are Voice. Young and old will take the tone with a bunch of seasoned choir conductor and musicians. Along with Malena Ernman, Tommy Körberg and Sofia Karlsson will Friends Arena be filled with beautiful singing where the audience themselves stands for the entertainment. No previous experience is required, it’s just to get a ticket and come! Tickets for the event went on sale yesterday.

Behind the initiative are three familiar faces; Martin Rolinski (BWO and Körslaget), Simon Ljungman (guitarist Augustifamiljen) and Fredrik Berglund (choir pedagogue and conductor).

My first encounter with the choir was in 2012 when I participated as a choir director in the television program Körslaget. I was completely knocked out by the energy that occurs when many people are singing together. We want to take care of the commitment and enthusiasm that exists in this gigantic social movement, collect all the Swedish choir and make the largest choir along with some of our most beloved artists, says Martin Rolinski, CEO and one of the initiators of We Are the Voice.

Choir song is the largest social movement – one of ten Swedes sing in a choir every week. However, communication in the choir and with other choirs is still a challenge, despite the wide availability of social channels and forums. When the musicians and friends Martin Rolinski, Simon Ljungman and Fredrik Berglund met three years ago was born the idea of a common meeting place for choir members and choir that would facilitate communication, interaction and repetition. The result was the platform and concert concept We Are Voice.

So here does it work at the concert:
When you buy the ticket, select the part you want to sing in – soprano, alto, tenor or bass. During the concert you stand together with others in your voice. All songs, lyrics and sheet music to be sung during the concert will be available in the We Are Voice app which is released in the spring. In this way, you can easily train and prepare you for the magical concert at the Friends Arena.

The tickets were released yesterday and can be purchased here >>.
