Great Glarus Gospel Extravaganza

And as the curtain fell at Leutschen, the Americans descended in Zürich for the great Glarus Gospel Extravaganza. The Inspirational Singers 10th year anniversary workshop was a complete success with a record 7 songs learned during the 8 hour workshop. Matthias Fritsche laid down the rhythm for Candace on Organ and “Unca D” on piano to perfectly accompany the more than 100 voices from the far reaches of Switzerland and Germany lifted in harmony.

The concert sound was glorious. With the powerpoint backdrop of choir days and workshops gone by and the return of Tabea Geissbühler-now Zingg also on piano, the evening’s concert was the perfect celebration of ten years of growth, togetherness and music. Afterwards, Gret Schnyder’s’s team put together THE ultimate after party where the specially created inspriti drinks and food gave the singers the chance to dance a bit or just to relax and let the day wash over them while listening to live sounds from Dominic Bertschen, Dave Bärtsch and friends.

High School Musical

Meanwhile, back at school, the kids were working just as hard as the pros. At the end of May after three days of intensive music and dance workshops, the students of Leutschen in Freienbach put on the Ritz! After paying homage to Swiss artists Bligg and Gotthard they visited Cuba, Woodstock, Abbey Road, Wien as well as today’s charts with song and dance from “Aisha” to “Who Knew” for their „High School Musical“. The students even wrote their own school song! Sharpay and Ryan would have been green with envy!!
