The Kammerchor der Frauenkirche was founded by Frauenkirchekantor Matthias Grünert in January 2005. It consists of about 40 semi-professional singers, who work together and perform under the direction of Kantor mainly a cappella works and oratorios from the 17th and 18th centuries.
The Kammerchor der Frauenkirche performed for the first time in public during Lent 2005 with an a cappella concert in the crypt of the Frauenkirche. Since then perform mainly the musical aspect of the worship, the sacred music on Sundays as well as concerts and other events at the Dresden Frauenkirche. In addition, the choir has experience as a musical ambassador of the Frauenkirche in concerts outside of Dresden. Thus they undertook concert tours in Alsace (2005), Japan (2006), Northern Italy (2008) and (2010 and 2012) to the UK.
