Caminhando

Open deuren, verschillende kleuren
Samen op weg, om het uit te zingen
Qu'importe ta couleur, donnons-nous la main
Ensemble, chantons sur le même chemin
Offene Türen, bunte Farben
auf dem Weg gemeinsam zu singen
People may be different
The road remains the same
Together we walk and sing
Cualquier sea tu color, démosnos la mano
Caminando juntos para cantar

Caminhando is a song of Geraldo Vandré (1968). It is also a choir that brings songs in solidarity with all people and oppressed ones on earth. This solidarity is expressed in the content of the songs as in the multiplicity of languages. The message of solidarity is elaborated and carried out in the diverse activities.

Activities

By and for our own members, Caminhando regularly (each six weeks) organizes so called "content evenings": everything from a slide presentation to a discussion concerning a certain topic. And don't forget our yearly week-end, where members get a chance to get to know each other better, in a relexed atmosphere.

There are about five performances each year. Also some celebrations and festivities that fit in the scope of the message that our choir wants to spread.

Rehearsals

Every wednesday from 20.00h till 22.00h in the Sint-Jan School, Mechelsevest 2, Leuven .
