Woven Chords is a mixed choir from Stamford who sing unaccompanied harmony songs from across the globe. Celebrating the richness and variety of the human voice, Woven Chords’ acappella singing gives expression to sumptuous harmonies from many different cultural traditions.
Woven Chords goes international - The Netherlands here we come!
Having forged a strong singing and social link with Vokaal Kabaal from Castricum when the Dutch choir visited us last October for 4 days, Woven Chords, will be paying a reciprocal visit at the end of May / beginning of June.
A coach party of nearly 60 and a few travelling separately will set off on Wednesday May 29th and return to Stamford Sunday June 2nd. Whilst in Holland the choir will perform in two joint concerts with Vokaal Kabaal, be treated to two parties, a beach activity, song workshop and sight-seeing visits to Amsterdam and the Zaanse Schans open air museum of old houses and windmills. All this interspersed with many explosions of ad hoc singing and performances between the two choirs if October is anything to go by!
Vokaal Kabaal and their build up to our visit is the subject of a Netherlands local television docu-soap. The final part of the story will be filmed while we are with them. We have not been on TV before!
We can’t wait to see our Dutch friends again. We perhaps need to catch up on sleep before we go as there might not be much time for it when we’re there!
The choir meets each Thursday at the Stamford Arts Centre to learn and practice
the 200+ repertoire of songs. At the end of each term a concert is performed to provide
the choir with an opportunity to share the songs and the enjoyment!
Details of the next (UK!) concert can be found on the concerts and events link.
