Sing “Everyone” with your choir, point the way towards human rights, dare a new, unheard-of work.
All choirs and orchestras worldwide are invited to play the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Whether you are a university orchestra, a concert choir or a state ensemble, you have not yet performed this work. But hopefully it will find its way into your repertoire so that human rights are on everyone’s lips.
Why should I play “Everyone”?
- As an ensemble you can present a new work.
- “Everyone” is like further training for your ensemble members, because many instruments use “extended techniques”.
To name just a few: flute: pizzicato, bass clarinet and saxophone: slap tongue, strings: chopping.
- You can point the way towards human rights by making human rights music.
- As a socially relevant topic, it is easier to support the concert through foundations and NGOs.
- The novelty and topicality of the topic promises high media attention.
- You offer your audience something unheard of: groove, new playing techniques and timbres as well as folk instruments in the orchestra.
- Those who perform the complete work in 2023 will of course also receive the previously unpublished sheet music free of charge and will be added to the list of world premieres on this website.
How difficult is the work?
The level of difficulty is roughly comparable to that of Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”, but probably a little more demanding.
It has a total length of 60–90 minutes.
