Happy birthday! On Wednesday, 12 February, the European Broadcasting Union celebrated its 70th anniversary. The EBU announced a competition especially for this birthday. Do you want to participate? Then read this article for further instructions!
Creative competition with the Eurovision anthem
We all know the Te Deum in the meantime, the piece of music that makes blood flow faster for every Eurovision fan. The EBU gives everyone the chance to redesign the Te Deum. How? Play the anthem on spoons, do it as rap, folk, opera, make-up or drum and bass. Go solo, improvise a choir, go vocal, local or global – it’s your call. The most important thing is that you can let your creative mind work in full mode.
Have you forgotten what the Te Deum by Marc-Antoine Charpentier sounds like? Then listen here!
