Join the Choir

Would you like to sing with us?

We need new singers who are keen to perform demanding church music at a high level with us.
The changeful history of our choir is one of the richest in the city, connected to world-famous musical personalities like Orlando Lasso, Caspar Ett, and Joseph Gabriel Rheinberger.
You should have a good singing voice and previous choral experience. We expect you to read sheet music, ideally even to bring some sight-singing skills. You should love singing, enjoy attending our regular rehearsals and participate in our performances - this includes our ministry during Solemn Mass on Sundays.

Still interested? Then please do not hesitate and contact us - preferably our choral director Frank Höndgen. He will arrange a personal meeting with you and invite you to a trial rehearsal, so that you can get to know us and our work from as many angles as possible.

We are looking forward to meeting you and singing together!
Your team of musicians at St. Michael's

Choir & Orchestra of St. Michael's

The choir and orchestra of St. Michael's have by far the longest and richest tradition of all the musical ensembles connected to our church. They can look back at a history that spans more than 400 years, starting with the consecration of the altars in 1592, which was accompanied by then maestro di capella Orlando di Lasso. Today the choir and orchestra are essential elements in the great concert of all musical ensembles at St. Michael's.

Chamber Choir

The Chamber Choir of St. Michael's was founded in 2006 to provide music for the festive arrangement of services during Holy Week. According to ancient traditions, all instrument fall and remain silent in the liturgy between Holy Thursday and the Easter night; the only music left is vocal music. The choir continues this tradition by dedicating itself mainly to a capella literature from the 16th to 21st century.
