A huge choir sang “Va pensiero” in Bern

The 29th of June 2013 was a rainy day, but at the moment of “Va pensiero” on the Bundesplatz Bern, even the rain stopped for an hour. The celebration of this 100-year tradition of private music studies was a big success! Many hundred people were set up in the outlines of the shape of Switzerland and sang Giuseppe Verdi’s most famous song (www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MJ64bDq4q0).

The event was organized by the Swiss Academy of Music and Music Pedagogy, who is a partner of the Kalaidos Music Academy – for new Bachelor Study Programmes in Music and, yet to come, new Master Study Programmes. The funds from this event will help carry on with the unique private music study programme.
