Classical

We offer four choirs which sing predominantly classical music. One of them is a women’s chorus. In order to maintain a high musical standard, it is necessary that at least 70% of all rehearsals are attended. Singers should not only bring their enthusiasm and love for music but also ambition and discipline in order to master challenging works. In addition to the weekly rehearsals there are 2 – 3 weekend sessions each semester. One choir is for beginners, for those who do not have much prior musical knowledge or others who have not pursued their musical interests for a long time.
