May 15 - 18, 1991
6TH FESTIVAL 1991"STARKE TÖNE VOM ANDEREN UFER" HAMBURG
17 Choirs from 5 Countries
Weeks (in fact months) of hard labor have gone by and there's still some work ahead of the amateur organizers that we are. It didn't always work the way we'd planned it to but we gave our best and now are looking forward to you and the celebration we are going to have together. Due to the fact that there are so many more new choirs, this festival is going to be bigger than was to be expected; but naturally we're glad about that.
The festival's capability of living has been questioned by some lately. Yet, we feel it must not die. Besides being an exciting and colorful gay event it is also a formidable stage from which to claim our rights. It gives us the opportunity to meet one another, to communicate, share.
Of course it is also a place to show off our famed qualities, may they be distributed in earnest or in dripping self-irony. Lets show them we're there. Lets show them we're colorful, playful, powerful. "Let's sound our barbaric yawp over the roof of the world" as Walt Whitman would say. The "Schola Cantorosa" welcomes you all and hopes for you to have a good time.
Hamburg is yours for four days. Take it.
