G.F. Handel's 'Hallelujah' chorus performed as never before
More than 350 voices united, virtually, in a great hymn to optimism.
ENJOY #ISING HALLELUJAH!
#ISing Hallelujah is a new participative digital project that has brought together more than 350 people performing the 'Hallelujah' chorus from Handel's Messiah from their home.
With a novel visual proposal by Igor Studio, the participative choral video merges the images sent by the 352 participants with those recorded in the Basilica Santa Maria del Mar in Barcelona in which a group of people discovers how the participants appear integrated into the wonderful architecture of the gothic basilica. In the same way, the audios of the amateur singers have been integrated into the audio recorded by the Orquesta Barroca Catalana and the choir Barcelona Ars Nova.
Before submitting their recordings, the participants followed the instructions of the video-tutorials published on our website without having details of how the final video editing would look like. On this final video is where they all get together, meet for the first time and discover the result of their work.
A total of 352 people between the ages of 14 and 82 were encouraged to live the experience of performing this master piece of the symphonic-choral repertoire by sending their recordings.
This project represents the second time that our participatory musical activity, which has a long tradition of more than 25 years, goes digital after the success of #ISing Viva la Vida.
