What began in 2001 as a one-time event turns 15 years old this year: the “Internationale A-cappella-Woche Hannover”. The festival’s anniversary has already started with its “on tour” concerts: on the 26th of January with Vivid Voices and tonalrausch at the Stadttheater in Wunstorf and on the 21st of March with JuiceBox. at the CD-Kaserne in Celle.


internationale_acappellawoche_hannover_tickets_2015In addition to many known faces there are also some new to discover with Beardyman (beat boxing), Van Canto (metal), and Voces8 (early polyphony, jazz, pop). LEVELELEVEN is a new name to the festival but the eleven members are well known to the regular audience under the name of “Rajaton” from Finland and “The Real Group” from Sweden. For the anniversary even the founding ensemble of the festival, Modell Andante, who disbanded in 2003, will give a one-off reunion.
