As previously stated, after this year Hedreich will be based in Texas and will commute to Switzerland for seminars, concerts and studio engagements. That news lent a sentimental note to the recent Glarner Inspirational Singers annual concerts. As they gave a nod to the last 13 years of choir history by including solos from former pianist Christian Menzi and even inviting singers from yester-year up to join the musical fun, the full house crowds clapped and sang along wherever they could. Since Hedreich likes to do interactive concerts, they sang lots and so the Advent season was ushered in with joy!
If you think Hedreich is a bundle of energy on the stage, you should see her working her magic with a group of singers. The last three weekends have found Hedreich doing just that and each weekend has borne musical fruit and brought accolades. This coming weekend her own choir, the Inspirational Singers, will be showing off their shine at concerts in Glarus and Glarus Süd. For more information, like the Inspirational Singers at facebook or check out their homepage.
Hedreich’s memories of Michael Jackson go all the way back to the Jackson 5’s Ed Sullivan debut. So it was a bittersweet day singing on Al Walser’s “Living Your Dream”. It will be released for Michael’s birthday, August 29th, with a closed release ceremony being held on Blofeld Entertainments’ terrace in Zürich. Hedreich sang from the heart. Harmonizing with Jermaine Jackson would have been a highlight for any singer had it not been for the fact that the recording is only coming to pass because Michael has indeed “gone too soon”. Still, Al has pulled in some excellent Swiss talent and the project promises to be a grand musical bouquet paying homage to one of the most influential musical entertainers of modern times. May he truly rest in peace.
