The project is an initiative of American composer Lisa Bielawa and American artist Sheryl Oring in cooperation with Kulturprojekte Berlin’s week-long celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution - Fall of the Berlin Wall.

On this page you will find:

  • teaching tracks of the two choir parts – Choir 1 (Easy) and Choir 2 (Intermediate)

  • teaching tracks of the various shorter solos and duets

  • downloadable PDF text sheets of the different parts so you can sing along, with real timings (i.e. 00:30) that correspond to the teaching tracks

  • a “mock-up” track with all of the parts together, so you can hear how your own part will fit into the performance

ARE YOU A CHOIR that wants to be featured in all four performances as an official participant? If so, we can visit your regular rehearsal to tell you more, and there is a small honorarium available for your organizer! Contact us at mauerbroadcast@gmail.com.

ARE YOU A SINGER who would like to sing one or several of the solos or duets, or be a Sing Leader? If so, please contact us at mauerbroadcast@gmail.com to set up an audition. We will send music scores and parts.

ARE YOU SOMEONE WHO LIKES TO SING and wants to join in? We would love to welcome your voice into Mauer Broadcast! Learn any of the parts here, come to the Sing-In if you want to have some rehearsal time with the Leader-Choirs, and show up at any of the festival performances.
