Dortmund Vocal Music Festival
From: 2014.05.16 To: 2014.06.08
Every summer for a few days, Dortmund becomes the European capital of vocal music. Voices from opera, classical vocal music, jazz and pop join forces in dazzling display of artistic acumen and sensibility, receptiveness and boundary crossing. Vocal music is the mainstay of the fest but there's also performances that focus on its relation with dance, architecture, film, light and video performances. The festival team works in close collaboration with various music institutions in Dortmund, including Konzerthaus Dortmund, Theatre Opera Dortmund, Dortmund Philharmonic, Ballet Dortmund, Jazz Club Domicil and the Choir Academy. Other attractions of the festival include the choir performances and the themed concerts, which in previous years included a “sacred bridges” series featuring Jewish, Christian and Muslim Psalms from the 16th and 17th century.
