We love to sing and perform.
We are professional amateurs.
We are open minded.
Everyone is welcome to join.
Courageously claiming staircases, metro stations, stages, parks and neigbourhoods.
To create lingering moments of voices, sounds and momvements.
For some we are exciting.
For some we are beautiful.
For some we might be irritating.
But we invite everyone equally to see, hear and feel anew.
To break grey patterns of the everyday and readjust our view on the space around us, the body and the voice.
What brings us together is a light-hearted take on music, where the collective is more important than individual performance.
We are the courageous ones.
We are the charming ones.
We are the Construction Choir Collective.
Drop us a line if you want to cooperate, work or join us.
The collective was orignally founded summer 2019 for a project called “Fredericke”. The goal of this project was to create room for art, cultur and music in public space. In a performative manner we set up a roof construction that even fully set up needed people in order to support it becoming a metaphorical showcase of what a collective means. Through this project we also got our name “Construction Choir Collective” and our uniform the blaumann.
Afterwards the spirit of the collective was already so strong that we decided to go forward with it without a second thought. Kicking off years with many different projects - performativ and musically. Selfe initiated staircase concerts, so that neigbouhrs get to know each other, performances at Wiener Festwochen and Urbanize, excursions to Bulgaria to meet choirs from a different culture and to celebrate the birthday of our conductor or a concert in a sightseeing bus, where we also told the story of our collective. And many more..
Even Corona could not stop us as we were still rehearsing - muted on a zoom call alone in our room to a youtube tutorial. What holds us together is a vision, a spirit, a bond. In summer 2019 we allowed ourself to collectively dream a beautiful dream and even if the circumstances change, members taking a break, new voices starting to sound, old ones fading away for good. The body of the collective will always life on and will transform the atmospheres of cities and its people through its voice.
