About the Concert
The Saxon Mountaineers' Choir "Kurt Schlosser" Dresden can look back on a tradition of over 95 years. It was founded in 1927 by the union of singing mountaineers in the tourist association "Die Naturfreunde". It is committed to the ideals of its former chairman and current namesake Kurt Schlosser, who was executed by the National Socialists in Dresden in 1944.
The men, who love to sing, give more than 15 concerts a year. The traditional mountain singing at the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein near the spa town of Gohrisch and the large gala concerts in Dresden in mid-November attract thousands of friends of choral singing from near and far every year. The repertoire is very diverse and ranges from typical mountain and hiking songs to German and international folk songs to sound creations by great masters.
The Saxon Mountaineers' Choir "Kurt Schlosser" Dresden is one of the best-known choirs in Germany and has already had the opportunity to demonstrate its skills in 14 countries around the world. This has led to close friendships, often even among families. Numerous CDs, videos as well as television and radio productions bear witness to the great charisma of the male choir.
The artistic direction is in the hands of chief conductor Axel Langmann, conductor Christian Garbosnik and voice coach Elke Linder.
