Sotto Voce - Pop Choir
joined Legato: 2016
Sotto Voce is the pop choir of the LGBTQ community center "WuF e.V." in Würzburg. We've been on stage since 2007.
We are about 40 singers of different ages and with various musical backgrounds, who are all connected by our dedication to and enthusiasm for singing pop songs that are excitingly arranged for up to eight voices by our three choral directors. Our repertoire covers a wide spectrum, ranging from ABBA to Adele and from Eric Clapton to Ed Sheeran. To challenge ourselves, we venture into gospel, rock, film music, jazz, and classical music.
At Sotto Voce, we focus not only on the acoustic results but also on the journey: every singer benefits from exercises in functional vocal technique at the beginning of every rehearsal. We meet for two hours each week at the Don Bosco vocational training institute. In addition, we organize several full-day rehearsals and two fun yet efficient rehearsal weekends every year.
Every year we host a concert weekend featuring two evening performances. For each concert, we prepare a repertoire that showcases new songs and arrangements unified by an annual theme. In addition, we have numerous appearances throughout the year at events of all different sizes.
