The National Song

Everywhere in Europe, the idea of the nation seems to be gaining in popularity.

In The national song, Wunderbaum wonders why people feel more and more attracted to the music from their own country.

The music that connects us and takes us back to our roots.
Will every member state only sing its own song, in the near future?

Together with Rotterdam choirs, we will skim along base top hits and tasteful classics, during a fabulous sing-along spectacle.

We are one. We are you. And you will join in the singing. Cause everyone can sing.
Unless, of course, you don’t know our music.

Nederland o Nederland. De meeste dromen zijn bedrog.
Maar dit is een nacht die je normaal alleen in films ziet.

The National Song is being developed simultaneously in Italy, Germany and the Netherlands with local choirs.
