Choir with two concerts – Harmony spreads love in Hollabrunn and Bratislava

Choir with two concerts – Harmony spreads love in Hollabrunn and Bratislava

Some ailments in the 1861 Harmony Choral Society made the performance in the Colloquium Hall at Hollabrunn not exactly simple, but the motto of the evening – “Love and Song” – seemed to have had a therapeutic effect. The city’s oldest active cultural association, led by Matthias Binder, has provided hits from John Lennon – “All You Need Is Love” – ​​to Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley and Billy Joel to Bette Midler. And it was always about love.

Having been associated with the choir for a long time, Robert Kellner added a literary element to the musical one and contributed texts to the History. The only thing left for harmony is Cliff Richard’s recommendation from 1963: “You should kiss red lips.” This is certainly not what Anton Nimmervoll, former president of the Lower Austrian Choral Society, had in mind when he surprised conductor Jette Rosenmeier by presenting her with a gold-colored Austrian Choral Society badge, including a letter of honor.

The Krawattl Tenors then performed their own songs on the subject in a humorous way with voice, guitar and violin, which of course also included interesting elements in the Viennese style of these songs. The audience was so impressed they obliged for an encore. But that was not the case for the choir that weekend, because the next day Bratislava was in love with harmony. The Hollabrunners performed their love songs in the former church of the Poor Clares Monastery in the Old Town.

This time the local heroes of the mixed chamber choir “Tempus” were the guests and hosts of the program. If only it were always that simple as in music. And at the end there was a joint declaration of love: “I can’t help but fall in love.” We then spent the evening celebrating together at the beer bar “Cerny Pes” – Black Hat – near the church.

“The choirs want to deepen their friendship and visit each other again,” was the summary of the weekend’s concert.
