About the project

How do you want to live in the future? Where do you want to work? Who do you want to love? How do you want to dwell? “Together, we will write a song about the Salzkammergut region and celebrate your region as a pioneer in the future for sustainability, diversity, social justice, culture and good music.” As an “unqualified chorus director”, Bernadette La Hengst has founded countless choruses in village or city projects and writes catchy pop songs together with the members of the choruses about their visions or complaints. The singer will create a hymn for the Salzkammergut region together with choruses from the region.
