… or was it the other way around?
The annual contest for musical talents “KarriereKanonen” at the Danish radio station P3 has created a tradition of mixing up genres. However, I do not think last years’ winners in Kaliber has seen this one coming … As many young talents they were completely unschooled for professional singing when they formed the group. Their music is straight and rough rap tunes as they come out of a Danish suburb.
But being a champ of “KarriereKanonen” will earn you training from some of the most powerful voices within the arts of singing; the opera singer. And so it happened, Kaliber meet Royal Soprano Anne Kleinstrup to improve their voices in music.
Besides from being a skillful entertainer Anne Kleinstrup likes to use her voice to practice talents of all genres, and she simply loves to make her music show up where you would least expect it. That is why she is no less than perfect as a promotor of ‘Outreach’ at the Royal Danish Opera, which makes the fine arts of opera meet contemporary music to create dialogue and common joy of culture among the artists and their (quite different) audiences.It turned out that the two obvious counterparts had more in common than meets the ear. They both uses their voices to express strong feelings and they both share serious stories of destiny.
Thanks to the great training Kaliber has now released their debut Udebane.
To celebrate Kaliber played a free concert at the entrance hall of The Royal Opera House, guest-starring their teacher Anne Kleinstrup. The concert was also a part of the Outreach-programme’s crossover music-events.
