[icon type="icon-calendar"] 16 Jun 2018 | Norderney, DDear friends, the last couple of weeks were almost hot like summer and gave us the chance to enjoy the sunlight and relax before starting our 14 days tour to the north of Germany, more precisely the islands in the North Sea. What was the phrase again to remember all these islands? “Just now v(w)ocaldente loves forming a-acapella-sounds brilliantly” And that´s exactly the route of our tour: Juist, Norderney, Wangerooge, Langeoog, Foehr, Amrum, St. Peter Ording and Buesum. Come around and join us rolling like the waves at the beach of the North Sea with “keep rollin´”! See you, your vocs
[icon type="icon-calendar"] 03 Feb 2018 | Bad Krozingen, GermanyDear friends,
After a short break we´re back on the road since the middle of January: we had several concerts in different parts of Germany and we were represented at the Convention of Performing Arts in Freiburg. Check our Instagram and take a look at our booth and watch a short video featuring Tobek and the „Ringmasters“ singing barbershop together. You have no clue what this is about? Click here to see the video.
After twelve months with no trips to the US we´re finally headed back for the states. More precisely to Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta and Mississippi. And apart from peanut butter and burgers we´re looking forward to singing concerts and giving workshops during this 10-day tour. We will keep you posted through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, of course.
Keep rollin', keep tourin' and keep singin'!

As you may have realized supermarkets have begun selling gingerbread and chocolate Santa Clauses since September, radio stations play „Last Christmas“ every now and then and your neighbor has set up the brightly illuminated decorative sleigh on top of his garage roof which lights up especially at night. Christmas is coming, no matter where you are.
We were in the Philippines this spring and wondered how does Christmas sound like over there. We did find out and recorded this little video to promote our new Christmas program '(V)erry Christmas' which we will perform throughout the next weeks. It features this popular Philippine song and many more melodies from countries all over the world. Check our tourplan at vocaldente.com and find out when we are coming to your area to get you into some real Christmas mood.
And now listen to „Ang Pasko Ay Sumapit“. Whatever that means … ;-)See you soon and a happy pre-Christmas season Your vocs

[icon type="icon-calendar"] 7 May 2017 | ChinaA long way off, traveling the land of smiles we´ve had 4 concerts in only a few days. We performed in Baotou, Beijing, Shanghai and Zhuhai and the Chinese song which we particularly rehearsed for this trip (see last news) was a great success. People liked it so much that we could hardly manage the large crowd asking for autographs, selfies and handshakes. This picture gives you an image of the atmosphere after the show. Now, we have two days off to take a rest before going back to Beijing and eventually finishing our tour in Shanghai. Life is a highway and music is our aeroplane. Your vocs

it´s been a while since you´ve heard from us, but we haven´t been lazy in the meantime. Not only are we woking on our new website and prepare for our concert in Minden but also are we getting ready for our two-week tour in China. We will perform in Beijing, Shanghai and Boatou. For this special occasion we arranged a special song which turns out to be a challenge even to the lovers of foreign languages in our group: it´s a chinese song about the jasmine flower. Take a listen to get a first impression.
We will be back soon with pictures, songs and impressions … and some jasmine flowers hopefully.
See you, ni hao
Three and a half weeks, one Arts Conference, 27 schools in 10 days, almost 10.000 kids, several concerts and workshops: our fall-tour through Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida has now come to an end. And even if you multiply and sum up all the numbers mentioned above it would definitely be more than the sum of its parts given all the lasting impressions and great experiences we made during our stay here in the US.
For the best part of this tour we were artists in residence invited by the Dubuque Arts Council and we are more than happy that our 31st trip to the USA turned out be real special as you can also see in our pictures. Now we are on our way back home and after so many burgers, cookies, sunshine and peanut butter we are really looking forward to grain bread, sparkling mineral water and … fall!
Just about a week ago we started this year´s almost 4-week fall-tour in the US. Here comes a quick report from Dubuque, Iowa: Invited by the Arts Council we are currently artists in residence holding masterclasses in 27 different schools all over the region within a two-week period. No matter if pre-school kids or middle school students up to grade 7 and 8: we are having great fun with all of them and it´s incredible to experience their overwhelming energy and enthusiasm in our interactive parts...
By the way: this picture was taken at 9:45 in the morning. And one might note that this was already our second masterclass of the day! Well, just as they say: the early bird gets the worm...
all the best from the voc-guys
