This video clip is the official invitation for the Night of the choirs. The event took place on the 26th of July 2015 in Pécs, Hungary, as a part of the festival Europa Cantat. Please find information in Hungarian here.
The invitation to envision and direct this clip came pretty late, but I accepted it partly because of the cheerful choir composition of Gabor Csongradi the video is accompanying. The idea of choir music being something fresh and real, that can be a part of many people’s life let them be dentists, plumbers or teachers is the concept Night of choirs builds upon, that also speaks to me. It was a great experience working together with this community of volunteers contributing to the Night of choirs (also called as Kórusok éjszakája or KÉJ).
