SILENT NIGHT HIGHLIGHTS TYROL
Without the travel craze and vocal art of courageous Tyroleans, 'Silent Night' would hardly have reached the status of a global Christmas carol. Staying true to the historical role as song-spreading artists, the Tyrolean contributions of the Silent Night Anniversary 2018 focus on the communication of alpine culture and music. Through musical theater, musical inns, educational programs, vibrant Advent calendars, special exhibitions and folk songs, which are proudly spread as ever, Silent Night and everything that music and history can mean after 200 years are made audible and noticeable.
Date: Mitterhart castle, Vomp Thur. 11th of October 2018
Lineup: 200J Stille Nacht Okt18
JAM-SESSION IN TYROLEAN
During the days of the Rainer-singers taverns were important centers of tyrolean culture and hubs of musical creations. Jam-Sessions and Open_Mic-Nights are creating opportunities for spontaneous and collaborative music-making and are similar to the musical tradition in tyrolean taverns, where music was played together planned and unplanned. In collaboration with the Tyrolean Musical School taverns will become community-stages again during the anniversary in 2018. Stefan Neussl will lead through the evenings.
MAKING MUSIC AT MITTERHART CASTLE
-TIROLEAN DANCE-MUSICIANS ….time to marvel at the artful harmony of the five dance-musicians performing their pieces: Stefan Neussl's floating-like trumpet, accompanied by the light.footed clarinet (Thomas Beck) and the dance-tempting harmonica by Peter Hausberger. The decent bass comes from Gerhard Hausberger (harp) and Emanuel Sporer (tuba). The tranparent and musically refined teamwork are convincing.
(Andreas Bretting, Weilheimer Tagblatt, 2016)
-YOUNG AND FRESH Equipped with violin, accordion and a harp, the three girls from Ötztal play young, fresh, patter as well as real, down-to-earth and hearty music.
