So buckle up !
It is a good idea to write to us on beforehand. Then we can tell you how to locate us and give you a few hints and tips. If we know that you are coming, we can also keep an eye out for you.
Who are we ?
Carmen Curlers is a choir for lesbians and gays. We are situated in Copenhagen,
but you do not have to live in Copenhagen to take part in our choir. At the moment,
we are 25 homos of all ages. We sing a very mixed repertoire, so there is a bit of a taste for everyone.
We are multinational - Danish (of course), American, Dutch - and we have had Irish, Japanese, German, Greek and Icelandic representation, as well.
Our repertoire is a mixture of songs in Danish as well as foreign languages - English, French, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Latin and now also Greenlandic.
But don't worry. We are not language freaks, and we will not expect you to have a flawless pronunciation. We just like to work with different cultural periods and regions, being a group of curious people !
Another thing you do not need to worry about is your ability to read notes and sheets. We are ambitious, but not all of us are fluent in reading notes. Therefore, most of our songs are recorded and/or created as music files that can be downloaded from dropbox for practicing.
We are also a social choir. We often go out for a beer after rehearsals - and after concerts also dinner. In addition, we organize a weekend seminar every year, where we use the time to work with techniques and practice some of the songs in more depth. And we party and have fun !!!
We rehearse every Thursday 7:15 pm to 9:45 pm in Lutherkirken, Randersgade 3, Østerbro. You will find a selection of our repertoire in this youtube playlist - or you may even want to listen to some of our recordings here.
If you are considering to join us or if you have any questions whatsoever, please write to Nanja van Wesen using the email address below. You can also use the 'Mailform' on the menu to the left.
We hope to see you soon !
