Often since primary school, the soloists in today's Advent Window have been members of the children's chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. They have sung in WOZZECK, TOSCA, OTELLO, BORIS GODUNOW, CARMEN, TURANDOT, LA BOHÈME, HÄNSEL UND GRETEL or PARSIFAL. Whereas being in a youth chorus is quite easy for girls up to the higher grades, the boys' voices break at some point. The larynx and vocal folds grow, during which the young singers temporarily lose their previously secure grip on their entire tonal spectrum. In the past, young people were often forced to remain silent until the "new voice" had grown in them. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rosemarie Arzt coaches the rapidly growing voice changer group, which was founded eleven years ago, through this difficult phase. Today they sing Christmas carols, Christmas carols and a cappella versions of well-known "seasonal hits" in the Advent calendar on the foyer stage.
