On "Europe Day" choirs and thousands of citizens from all over the Europe will gather on squares, parks, or public spaces in their cities and sing the European anthem “Ode to Joy at exactly 12 00 CET. After that, each choir sings their own national anthem and has a concert program.
The main value of the “European sing together” project is the possibility for all European citizens to express their pride of living together in peace and doing this through singing. There are many similar ideas of people gathering on public places and singing together, but there are none where people sing the European anthem simultaneously in different countries. This idea was created to be transferable all over Europe, to choirs, cities and countries.
The successful outcome of our project would be that thousands of choirs all over the Europe would start singing the European anthem at the same time. The “Europe sings together” is trying to reach all European citizens who would like to support the European idea and express their pleasure of living together.
Our choir has already started with the rehearsals so that we can have a public concert on the Europe day, on 9 May 2015 at the main square in Maribor. We have already started executing this project by making a contact with Radio Maribor, part of our national broadcasting service RTV Slovenia who will be the basic radio and project connection with EBU (European broadcasting union) for simultaneous start. The strategy of this project will primarily be sharing the idea and establishing a media and choir network so that each year more choirs will participate in the project
