My first visit to the Natura.Kreativ led me to the Reitlehenalm, an alpine pasture near Altenmarkt im Pongau. Right in the middle of the hills, a class in voice training took place. The teacher was Annelie Leuthäuser, an experienced theatre and concert singer.
Though I only stayed for half an hour I was touched by the location. On this sunny morning, the view from the alpine cabin was excellent and one felt the real meaning of the phrase “The hills are alive with the sound of music!”
Annelie Leuthäuser ran also a class for ensemble singing at the same place. After two days of training, this ensemble presented their new skills at an event in front of all participants of the Natura.Kreativ. Personally, I was very impressed by their interpretations of some evergreens and the fact that half of the audience joined in to sing.
