Wie Klingt Basel? (How Does Basel Sound?)
What do we associate with folk songs today? Are they still part of our history, our identity? Many of us know them from childhood or associate them with special memories. No matter in which language—folk songs from all countries are an expression of home and community.
The Sinfonieorchester Basel would like to bring your folk songs to life in all their polyphony. They want to learn from each other and all sing together in the most diverse languages. How different does Basel sound? They conducted a survey to find out which folk songs are your favorites and which songs you have special memories of. From the entries, they have made a selection that they would now like to bring to life together. With a large orchestra and singers on stage and in the audience, the Stadtcasino Basel will become the soundtrack of the city.
