Aarhus Revisited (3): Five A Cappella Video Greetings

by Florian Städtler

After a flood of enthusiastic AAVF (Aarhus Vocal Festival) status updates, an amazing collection of photos and a trifle of post-festival blues, it’s hard to add anything really new and important to what’s already been said about this year’s European vocal music highlight. That’s why I thought – why not let some Aarhus participants speak to you, my dear Vocal Blog readers? Fortunately I was able to shoot a few little videos of international guests, who came to Aarhus to sing, listen, learn and network.

By the way: Aarhus and all of the vocal, a cappella and choral people who met there, made the past days and weeks the busiest ever for Vocal Blog. So great to know more and more people come to read the blog on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing the blog with your friends and thank you very much for your comments. Some of you who posted their “Favourite Aarhus Moments” will be rewarded by a copy of the brandnew Postyr album!

So here we go, let’s see and listen to a bunch of great aca-people, saying hello from Aarhus:

(Don’t get confused by the animation at the start of some of the videos [Yes, Clare, I know that you're not a "Neues Projekt" ], which I simply wasn’t able to change in iMovie…will work on that ;-) …just had to get this post up, couldn’t wait any longer!)

Jussi Chydenius – Rajaton (FIN)

Clare Wheeler – The Swingle Singers (UK)

You can look forward to more video greetings by Ellen Bakker, Tobias Hug, Peter Martin Jacob, Havard Gravdal, Céline Morel, Constance Chouette and Thierry Lalo in another post, looking forward to your comments. And if you want to post a sentimental or funny video greeting to tell the aca-community how much you liked Aarhus, go to the Vocal Blog Facebook group, become a member and post your video message there.

    LOL! I keep coming back to this. Everyone’s so cute! Oh dear, now worried about my own contribution, because I can’t remember what I said…

    Ellen, your video is great, I just wasn’t able to upload it for reasons I don’t know…This goes for Céline’s/Constance’s, Peter’s, Tobi’s and a few more. But I will win over the internet! It’s overestimated anyway ;-)

    Hey Florian
    Isn’t there a better way to embed the video to your site?
    Check out Vimeo. They have some prette nice players. It’s a bit of a hassle to see to videos you’v posted here… :) (read: not fit for the FB / zapper generation (read: Me))

    Hey Kristoffer,

    you’re so right – I’m going to work on that, will probably upload future videos to YouTube or Vimeo, than use the code to embed them in the blog posts. Give me another chance, Mr. Thorning ;-) !

    Speak to you soon, FSt/Florian
