Concerts 2015

Show introduction ...

Enjoy Music Together

Dear friends of the Cäcilienchor,

just a few weeks ago we performed Mendelssohn's "Paulus" at the hr broadcasting hall, and now you can already see this year's program from the Cäcilienchor in front of you. In 2015 we pay our choir's classical repertoire a visit: the grand oratories and passions by Bach and Händel. We will also sing Rossini's „Petite Messe solennelle“ as well as – in the context of the museum concerts – the „Resurrection Symphony“ by Gustav Mahler.

Our christmas program will be supplemented for the first time by a family concert. Here the children will be able to experience what so many friends of clasical music find so fascinating about Bach's Christmas Oratory.

We are proud to present you this diverse program and are looking forward to your visit at one of our concerts.

Best regards

Dear friends of the Cäcilienchor,
in the previous year as well as in 2016 immigration is a major focus topic in Frankfurt. People of all different cultures and nations are seeking refuge with us. Playing music and singing in a choir are a wonderful platform for integration

We at the Cäcilienchor embrace singers from many countries in the world, and also this year's program is connecting Italy with Estonia, Austria with Germany, because cultural diversity is a major attractor in music.

Look forward to our 2016 program and be our guest.

Concerts 2017

Show introduction ...

Dear friends of the Cäcilienchoir,
in 2017 - one year before our choir's 200th anniversary - we will again leave the paths of our established repertoire:
In the 1920's Berlin and at the french impressionists we have new things for us - look forward to it!

With the concert "Martin Luther's Chorals" on the other hand we want to point out the influence of this reformer on sacred music. With this program the choir will also take part in the 19th German Choir Festival in the end of April in Magdeburg.

Look forward to a diverse and thrilling concert year.
Join us in this experience!

Best regards,
Thomas Hohmann
Chairman of the board

Ladies and Gentlemen,

when in the 19th century the first "civil" choirs were founded, the world was unsuspecting of the practices of historic performances. The treasures of choir music were conquered and the works of old Italian masters were sund as full-chested as Schütz, Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn or Brahms. Today we know that Monteverdi should be performed differently from Mozart and that Bach and Brahms are worlds apart when it comes to transforming notes to ringing music.

So, when we will now present the 2017 program spanning 500 years of musical history from Martin Luther to Friedrich Hollaender, this will also be a big challenge for my Cäcilienchor. It must tackle 16th century's music with its just invented polyphony as well as the glittering splendor of Bach's baroque, but it must also adopt the subtle colorfulness of French impressionism as well as the cheeky directness of Berlin chansons.

Because the Cäcilienchor follows this path through the centuries with such curiosity and panache with me makes working with it so fulfilling. To lead this work to create fulminant concerts is my promise for 2017!
