About the Concert

When five former Thomaner and about 40 young singers from the Philharmonic Children's Choir come together in concert, they are all aware of one thing above all: singing is the most natural form of music - produced with the body and made for the soul of man.
The Leipzig ensemble amarcord has been singing together since 1992 and today is a kind of benchmark for homogeneous sound and the ability to make pieces resonate for the audience, especially for young choirs. In their joint programme they sing folk songs from all over the world and bring fascinating and above all very beautiful sounds to our concert hall.

amarcord

Ensemble

Founded in 1992 by erstwhile members of St Thomas’s Boys Choir in Leipzig, amarcord has since become one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles. amarcord’s hallmarks include a unique tone, breathtaking homogeneity, musical authenticity, and a good dose of charm and humour. amarcord performs a vast and highly diverse repertoire of music, from medieval plainsong to madrigals and Renaissance masses, to compositions and cycles of works of the European Romantic period and the 20th century, arrangements of a cappella folksongs collected from all over the world, all the way to soul and jazz charts.
