Stadtsingechor Halle (Choir)

Founded: 1116 - Halle (Saale), Saxony, Germany

The musical history of Halle goes back to 1116, when the Stadtsingechor, Germany's oldest existing boy's choir was founded in the Neuwerk monastery. The singers perform works by George Frideric Handel, J.S. Bach or modern composers, including concerts around Germany and Europe, just as the city's other 25 choirs, among which the Halle Madrigalists , the Robert-Franz-Singakademie and the choir of the Church Music School should especially be mentioned.
