“Mr Malderle brought us outstanding experiences,” explains Günter Fürntratt, husband of the choral conductor and constant companion on each choral journey. “He organized an excursion to the largest zoo crocodile, took us on a duck boat tour, he went shopping with the choir girls – for that reason alone he deserved an award – ,he watched enthusiastically each of our performances and he even bargained a discount wherever we’ve been, we paid the regular prize not even once.”
The singers of Singakademie Graz loved their volunteer Werner Malderle, or rather him and his outstanding commitment. There’s only one drop of bitterness to remain, Fürntratt adds: “He never sung a tone, never, as much as our singers even tried to induce him to do so!”
Well, so there’s one thing we have learned from Mr Malderle: At the World Choir Games even those can win who don’t sing!
