Sing together – GeMainsam – the name says it all!

GeMainsam is a play on words, combining the German word for “together” (gemeinsam) and the name of the river Main, running through our beloved city. With our project we want to bring people from Frankfurt and their cultures closer together through singing. Frankfurt thrives on its diversity and we want to show and celebrate it by inviting you to sing a song with us in different languages and create a fantastic video. Particularly in times of Corona we want to strengthen the community of our city.

What do we sing?

With “Wie Sand” [Eng.: “like sand”] by Leontina we found a great song to give us hope and joy during these times that seem so gloomy to most of us. Our musical director arranged the song for the project so that we can sing it not only in many languages, but also in several voices .

And don’t be afraid! Even if you’ve never sung before, you can of course sing with us. We’ll make it easy for you, we’ll rehearse with you! Of course, everything will happen Corona-compliantly in the virtual world and with the opportunity to get to know the singers beforehand. How andwhen? We have compiled all the information for you in a compact form – and in many languages. Here you will find all the information about how to record your voice and how the video will be created.

Online-Rehearsals

There are three rehearsals. Join us live (for this you may print out the music sheets that can be found in the members area)
