Marktschreierei (market yelling)
Befor we go underground for a whole week we tank up our batteries with sunlight at our opening event called Marktschreierei (market yelling).
Although this is what sales people at a market usually do, no worries, no one is going to yell. We have plenty of microfones so you can hear our singers perfectly. This time this is going to happen at Lendplatz (!) in Graz. Three groups will open the show and afterwards the stage is open for anyone! Grab yourself a microfone and sing from your heart! Our friends from AIMS will also sing with about 30 singers.
Groups from Taiwan, Philippines, Italy, Georgia and many other nations will compete for the Ward Swingle Awards in the categories Jazz and Pop.
The first prizes will also get Euro 1.500 and an invitation to Taiwan. Our Partners from TCMC bring the winners to this beautiful island to have a concert tour. There will also be another Magenta Talent Trophy. magenta – the acappella agency supports newcomers with a coaching voucher worth Euro 1.500 and a concert in Germany. And the the winners of the 1st and 2nd prize also receive a wildcard for the Vocal Champs in Sendenhorst. Great, right? You want to participate with your group next year? Sign up now!
Party, Party, Party
Yes, we are going to party three times, since no one really wants to go home after the adrenaline rush of a competition anyway.
On Wednesday, after the pop category, we party with DJs at Dom im Berg.
