about us

The work of the Choir focuses first of all on the cultivation of sacred choral music, especially on the musical tradition of central Germany represented by Scheidt, Handel, Schuetz, J.S. Bach etc..

The Stadtsingechor regularily participates in the Handel Festival in Halle. Doing so, the Choir even sang under the conductorships of Trevor Pinnock, Steven Simon, Alessandro de Marchi and others.

As a tradition and on a regular basis the Choir performs motets in the Marketchurch in Halle and the Cathedral in Merseburg.

The close cooperation with the Staatskapelle Halle and the Handel Festival Orchestra plays an important role in the work of the Choir. In the course of the recent years we were thoroughly trying to establish contact with other boys`choirs in Germany and other European countries.

In the years after 1990 the Choir went on several trips which led to Belgium, Spain, Switzerland and Great Britain. In 2001 the boys were on tour in Estonia, in 2003 in the USA, in 2005 in Denmark, in 2009 in China and in 2013 in Lithuania. The concert tour in May 2015 took place in Finland.

In the year 2002 the Stadtsingechor zu Halle won the German Choir Competition in Osnabrück.
