Re: Choir in Zurich

It is a great idea to join a choir. Sharing a common interest will make it so much easier to find friends. At least, this was the case for me, I have met great people this way.

For a complete overview, check out
http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/kultur/d...sik/Links.html

You may also go to a concert, first, to check out the choir: http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/content/...02011-8-18.pdf

Have fun and enjoy!
All the best
Idgie

Re: Choir in Zurich

Some choirs, especially those singing 'Gospel Songs', think they do.

Re: Choir in Zurich

As mentioned, I do sing in a choir, and it has proven to be a very easy way of making new friends. We practice in Altstetten, sing mainly "classical" music, and we are always looking for new singers, especially men (like most choirs). We sing in German, Latin, Italian, French, English - but have also done rare languages such as Icelandic (which I am sure sounded horrible to any native). So, if you are interested, check out www.laudate.ch or let me know.

Best
Idgie
