joined Legato: 1998
Welcome to the RosaCavalieren: We stand next to Lili in front of the barracks and accompany Major Tom into space. With Schubert and Bruckner we get the romance in the present. We sing for a dear audience and the one and the other worshipers In garters and tracksuits in rows of three and swimwear. Of course always a cappella.
Founded in 1990 as a gay men's chorus in Berlin, our ensemble consists RosaCavalieren today from about two dozen. Hits of the 20 's and 30's were in the early years of our musical focus. Today the repertoire of Gregorian chants and song cycles of romance about rock and pop songs is enough to jazz interpretations, musicals and popular songs.
We routinely prepare a new evening program in the form of a musical revue. We collaborate with different musicians. Together we develop arrangements that are tailored to us . They form the basis for a unique show.
Our program is pleasurable, our commitment politically. As naturally occurring gay group we designed for years with events commemorating the liberation of the concentration camp Sachsenhausen. In the extermination camps of the Third Reich and gay men were imprisoned, tortured and murdered. We also help people with HIV / AIDS with benefit concerts and participate in worship services in church PositiHIV in Berlin -Wilmersdorf. We heard from the Christopher Street Day and work with parties and civil rights movements together.
Baby, we were born this way!
