Hundige Choir (and other choirs) in DR Concerthouse, October 2015
In the autumn of 2015, the choir turned 20 years. But with the packed program for the last part of 2015, we decided to postpone the celebrations until 2016.
On 5th February, we had invited the choir with spouses and our previous conductors and choirmembers to a celebration of the jubilee. We started out with a small concert in the church, then we held a reception, and after
that we spent a nice evening together, dining, talking reminiscing and singing.
The rest of the Spring season was concentrated around another concert to celebrate the choir jubilee, on 10th April in Hundige Kirke,
and to end the Season, a performance in Tivoli Gardens.
We wished each other a good Summer at a gathering in Hundige Kirke ind the end of May, where we invited friends and relatives to a small concert, and that
concluded the 2015-2016 Season.
Through Autumn we had a fully packed program, with participation in different gatherings for choirs, preparation for Christmas, Christmas concerts and our upcoming tour that will
take us to Antwerp in Belgium in May 2017.
We concentrated our Spring activities around performances at our conductor Tina's wedding in
April, a concert at Tivoli Gardens' Pantomime Theatre in May, and participation in Hundige Church's anniversary service in the end of June.
In the Autumn we took part in a big arrangement called "The Caravan of Choirs" (Korkaravanen), where many choirs
came together for a grand concert in "Koncerthuset" (Danish Radio Concert Hall) celebrating the 150th anniversary for the birth of Danish composer Carl Nielsen. Pictures and video HERE. We also
took part in another choir festival in Copenhagen arranged by Glostrup Men's Choir.
In November the choir gathered for a full weekend rehearsal in Kalundborg, in order to prepare ourselves for our Christmas concerts and performances.
we rounded up the year. First at the traditional 9 Readings in Hundige Kirke, and on 19th December we had a Christmas concert like none before. The concert was in Mosede Kirke, arranged by Niels Kjølhede, and the theme for the concert was "Christmas
around the world". We went to places like Australia, Poland, Spain, Germany, England and the Scandinavian countries. Musically, that is. The church was absolutely full, and it was a wonderful feeling to perform such a terrific program to the enthusiastic audience.
Spring season was concentrated on our Tromsø concert tour. See under Choir Travels. During the autumn season we took
part in a revival of the former Bethesda concerts together with other inspiring choirs. - There was also a deanery concert with a selection of deanery choirs taking part, and last, but not least, our usual peak season with Christmas concerts.
