Pink Noise, Active Company Antwerp's choir, is one of a kind: it is the only LGBTQ+ choir in Flanders. In the choir, you can enjoy yourself musically, but conviviality also occupies centre stage. Singing in a choir means teamwork. Everyone needs to see eye to eye or, if you will, no one should have to play second fiddle.
Singing in a choir is the way to relax through musical effort. After all, beautiful singing does not happen automatically: it is a complex combination of breathing, voice placement, intonation, rhythm, harmony, timbre… You'll notice, while singing, there is little time and 'internal memory' left to think about the daily grind. This will sound familiair to our choir members: you drag yourself dead tired to a rehearsal, but after the musical effort, the fatigue seems to have disappeared and you go home with your batteries recharged. Well, home? A number of choir members stick to the weekly 'après rehearsal' in bar Den Draak.
The choir of Active Company Antwerp has both men and women and choir members who can or cannot read music. Through teamwork and a lot of patience from our conductor, we manage to achieve a decent musical result. The musical abilities and team spirit are given an extra boost every year during the choir weekend: three days of intensive rehearsals on site. From time to time, we hire a vocal coach to provide extra support. The choir weekend is the highlight of every year, both musically and socially.
