Pushing to the pain threshold

Pushing to the pain threshold

Three years have passed since the 49 singers of the mixed choir from riedenberg took part in the performance competition of the french sangerbund and were able to achieve the rating "performance choir" for the second time. Now the question was raised of whether to face the jury of experts again in order to be able to call themselves a performance choir for another three years.
At this year’s annual general meeting of the "gesangverein frohsinn riedenberg", a vote was taken by the active members of the choir. Knowing full well that there will be another marathon rehearsal in which every note, every phrasing and every clear pronunciation will be fought over. The intonation will be crammed to the pain threshold and that in many many rehearsals. Nevertheless, the vote was unanimous for participation.
As conductor erhard schumm announced, this time, however, they will compete in the B-group. After achieving the highest score of all participating choruses in the C-group last time, he wants to challenge the chorus further and aim for the next level of difficulty. With the A-group there is then only a higher degree of difficulty about it.
The choir can look back on two major events in the past financial year. The first step was a presentation at the valentin becker award ceremony in bad bruckenau. In addition to very renowned choirs, who presented the award-winning choral works, the riedenberg choir was allowed to sing for the opening ceremony.
Something very special and new was the joint concert with the youth symphony orchestra of lower franconia. In aschaffenburg and schweinfurt, people were allowed to sing for the first time in large concert halls.
Treasurer ulrike belz read out the cash report, to which the two auditors ernst stephan and beate metz had no complaints. The board of management was discharged. Gerhard jager was newly elected as treasurer, replacing ernst stephan.
