Tutarchela Youth Choir
UPCOMING EVENTS 2024
Invitation for Study Tour to Georgia: 14-20 September 2024
For choir conductors, musicians or music events organisers, Georgia is a must! The country, renown as the “Balcony of Europe”, is the living cradle of an unique polyphony, originated in the 12th century and declared an intangible world cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2001. To this day, singing is equal to speaking and has existential importance for the Georgians – “Like air to breath”. The polyphony varies from village to village, region to region and reflects the variety of languages, landscapes, climate zones and realities of life of the natives living between Europe and Asia. Hard to explain how such a small country managed to preserve its own culture, its own music, language and writing. The latter two are not easy for non-Georgians to learn, but the singing, national dancing, embedded in hospitality, delicious cuisine and wine deeply touches the hearts of the visitors. Georgian singing and dancing are Georgia’s most successful ambassadors!
