Highlights of the Anniversary Programme

The year 2016 is all about the 900th anniversary of the Halle City Boys' Choir (Stadtsingechor).
The Halle City Boys' Choir resides at the Francke Foundations. The choir’s activities focus on fostering sacred music, including works by George Frideric Handel, Johann Sebastian Bach, Samuel Scheidt and Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow. The latter two were also among the choir’s well-known music directors.
The Halle City Boys Choir regularly organises motets in the Halle Marktkirche or in the Merseburg Cathedral and collaborates with the International Handel Festival as well as on the occasion of various performances and projects of well-known choirs, opera houses and concert halls.
More information on the Halle City Boys' Choir and its anniversary can be found on the Choir’s homepage.
