Girls Choir of Hamburg (Mädchenchor Hamburg).
A dynamic choir of 50+ girls from Germany.
The aim of the Girls Choir of Hamburg is the professional promotion of the vocal and musical development of children and adolescents as part of a committed and open-minded choir community. From the beginning, the girls develop sensitivity for proper vocal handling, different choral sounds and collaborative music making. An essential part of the choral work are the concert tours featuring the Girls Choir of Hamburg.
Reviews for the choir have been outstanding. They’ve been described in superlatives for the depth and breadth of their performances, plus their ability to impress audiences of all ages.
“Germany’s Hamburg Girls’ Choir has enthralled audiences from Switzerland to Swaziland with its nuanced sound and polished performances.” A performance by the acclaimed Girls Choir of Hamburg is a not-to-be-missed event.
The choir, which usually includes members ranging in age from 14 to 22 years, sings mainly a cappella music, using just their voices to create beautiful music. Their heritage may be German but their repertoire choices are global. Choir conductor Gesa Werhahn stated “We always try to have a varied repertoire. We try to sing secular music and popular music. The girls love to sing these pieces.”
International tours are an integral part of the girls’ experience as it gives the choir a chance to share their music and have something special to prepare for. They also learn from the people they meet.
An appearance by any choir this large, and particularly a group of international singers from Germany could not be undertaken without the help of so many local people. We thank everyone who helped, including the dozens of people who opened up their homes to provide lodging for almost 70 performers.
