About the project
70 years – 70 choirs sing human rights 2018 is a project for choirs to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). You can read it, but you can also sing it.
The singers of at least 70 choirs will lift their voice for human rights while singing human rights. They voice every human right – their and everyone’s human rights. Your choir can be part of this project and be one of the first choirs performing this new piece of music for the first time.
In 2018 70 choirs will perform 70 concerts at 70 venues world wide, singing the UDHR accompanied by a symphony orchestra. 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the UDHR. The composer Axel Christian Schullz, set the original wording of the UN document to music. Catchy tunes for a legal document which describes the rights and freedoms every human being in the world owns.
In April 2018 all conductors of the participating choirs meet in Berlin, Germany to talk about the work and about human rights, and to premiere the piece under the baton of the composer.
On Dec. 10th 2018 – the “birthday” – all sheet music will be made freely available for everyone online. Then anyone can download, perform and rearrange these human rights compositions.
The German UNSECO Committee recommended the project already for support, but to realize the project creative ideas and support are needed…
