World champion whistler Geert Chatrou does it again

By

Last Monday competition whistler Geert Chatrou from Mierlo, Noord-Brabant, was crowned the world champion of whistling in Tokyo for the third time. He first held the title in 2004. Chatrou performs regularly and has his second CD out. Many whistlers make whistling their job while Chatrou prefers to work as an orderly.

Enjoy him whistling ‘Queen of the Night’ (with that wonderful high note) taken from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) opera.

  1. Really incredible! I did not know about whistling competions and stuff but most of all I never thought people could whistle so nicely for a long period!

  2. Beautiful! I do multiple toned whistle, toggling between high and low rangers, also while breathing in and out. Do you know others that do this? Curt
