We are overwhelmed, fulfilled, inspired and grateful for the One River Voices experience! You were one of over 350 people involved in making this wonderful event happen. Whether you sang, played, or helped, you braved the cold, even some rain, in order to take part and help send a sign of positivity to the world. Each of you was a drop in the beautiful “River” we created together.
Our many voices became “One Voice”.
Many of you said you would like to help finance the project in some way. The event on the 7th of May was made possible by the enormous goodwill of the Kulturhof Köniz, by the many helpers, and by donations from some of the singers. One River Voices flows on and we are grateful for your financial support for the production and promotion the video in the coming months. If you would like to contribute to the cost of sharing our message, you can do so here:

The One River Voices journey continues.
Lots of audio files have to be sifted through, takes chosen, mixed, mastered, bounced and then there is 300GB of Film material that has to be looked through, scenes have to be chosen, cut, edited and finally made in to two videos, a ‘making of’ and a ‘music video’ that we hope to have ready for all of you to see and share by the end of June. We had two photographers on site. They too have to go through 6 hours of material! Over the next few weeks we will share with you many of the pictures that they took throughout the event.
And please, send us your videos and photos from Sunday and share your experiences of the day with us. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload as many as possible on www.facebook.com/Onerivervoices over the next couple of months.
We will stay in touch!
Keep on flowing!
Clíodhna, Shirley and Alex.
We have been trying to get in contact with the Sun Gods but we seem to have the wrong number! So, if you wake up Sunday morning and you look out the window, see a grey sky and feel the cool temperature, please don’t be discouraged. This just means that it will be up to all of us to create the warmth and light we will need for the one river voices event to be a fulfilling experience. We aim to sing for tolerance, respect and unity, no matter what the sun decides to do!
We will probably spend a lot of our time in the Schüür but we also really want to get to use the wonderful courtyard in the Schlosshof and will try to make that possible. Either way, wrap yourselves up really warm. The Schüür is not insulated but we will install a few Gas heating towers, provide lots of ‘one river voices’ tea, a hot meal and together we can sing all the clouds and the rain away!
We are excited and so very much looking forward to meeting each and every one of you!
See you tomorrow!
Clíodhna and Shirley and the One River Voices Team
