Boys´ Choir (Stadtsingechor zu Halle)
Fostering Central Germany’s Musical Traditions
The choir’s work is centred mainly on sacred choral music, whereby the prominent music tradition of Central Germany including Scheidt, Handel, Schütz and J. S. Bach receives special attention. Essential to the choir’s work are: regular performances of motets in Halle’s Marktkirche and the Merseburg Cathedral, cooperation with Halle’s symphony orchestra (Staatskapelle Halle) and participation in the Francke Foundations’ cultural activities.
Proof of the choir’s artistic quality is its long involvement with the International Handel Festival in Halle. From the 1990s on, it successfully repeated guest performances abroad. Tours have included Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Great Britain, Denmark, Estonia, Russia, the United States and China.
