The BigBand in Concert: „A Soul Journey“

The Concert Programme

The Big Band of the Deutsche Oper Berlin led by Manfred Honetschläger embarks on a journey spanning the history of soul music – the cue for an opera stage busting with soul, groove and full-bodied brass sounds. Amber Schoop, Florezelle Amend and Worthy Davis cover immortal soul hits by artists ranging from Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye to Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, specially arranged for the Big Band and the youth jazz chorus Young Voices Brandenburg. The concert is presented by Adolf-Grimme Award winner Christian Brückner, familiar for decades as the cool, warm, mellifluous voice of radio programmes, readings, audio books and jazz sessions and the legendary dubbed voice of Robert de Niro in many a Hollywood movie.
