Auditions for new members, Intercultural Choir, GNO Learning Alternative Stage

November 2018 - June 2019

From Athens to Papua New Guinea, from Kenya to Ukraine and from Slovakia to Tanzania, people from all four corners of the earth unite their voices, become one and interpret songs speaking straight to the heart. This is the power of the GNO Alternative Stage’s Intercultural Choir which continues its multicultural journey through the world’s neighbourhoods. In the third year since its creation, the Intercultural Choir continues to offer unique moments and intense feelings to the audiences, and at the same time a unique experience to its members.
Songs of unpaired melodic richness from the traditional music of the countries of origin of its members constitute the Intercultural Choir’s repertory, which continues to be enriched with new material. Already, the Choir has over 25 members, while the last two years it has conducted workshops in refugee and immigrant accommodation sites as well as in open concerts at Kypseli and Omonia squares, at the Athens Airport and the Summer Nostos Festival of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
The GNO's Alternative Stage, in collaboration with the Learning and Participation department of the Greek National Opera, is inviting permanent and temporary citizens to become members of the Intercultural Choir!
We are looking for amateur and professional musicians, as well as people that love singing without necessarily having previous musical experience.

CHOIR MAESTRO: Vasoula Delli
