Kammerchor singt zu Naunhofer Orgeltagen

Anlässlich der 5. Naunhofer Orgeltage gastiert der Kammerchor Schola Cantorum Leipzig am Freitag, den 22. Mai 2015 um 20 Uhr in der Naunhofer Stadtkirche. Unter der Leitung von Stephan Gogolka erklingt Chormusik von Francesco Durante, Pjotr Iljitsch Tschaikowski, Giuseppe Verdi, Karl Jenkins und anderen. Unterstützt werden die Sängerinnen und Sänger von Aya Kugele (Klavier), Lena Göb (Flöte) und dem Naunhofer Kantor Espen Melbø an der Ladegastorgel der Stadtkirche. Karten gibt es im Vorverkauf im Pfarramt Naunhof (Tel. 034 293 – 29 493) sowie an der Abendkasse zu 5 und 10 Euro.

Die Schola Cantorum Leipzig wurde im Jahr 1963 als Kinder- und Jugendchor gegründet, und arbeitet seit 1982 unter Trägerschaft der Stadt Leipzig. Heute singen und musizieren, angefangen von musikalischer Früherziehung über Spatzenchöre, Kinderchor, Mädchenchor bis hin zu Ensemble und Kammerchor, insgesamt ca. 300 Kinder, Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene unter dem Dach der Schola Cantorum Leipzig. Vielfältige Wettbewerbserfolge, CD- und Rundfunkproduktionen belegen das hohe musikalische Niveau der Chöre. Zudem führten Konzertreisen die Chormitglieder in den vergangenen Jahren unter anderem nach Frankreich, Italien, Finnland, Großbritannien, Israel, Südafrika und in die USA.

Girls and female choir of the city of Leipzig

The Schola Cantorum Leipzig's girls and female choir has 80 singers between the ages of 12 and over 30. The choir belongs to Germany's best and is internationally renowned, not least of all due to the high level of musical quality demanded, its rigorous youth development programs, many concert tours abroad as well as a variety of awards won in acclaimed competitions. The choir is especially well versed in the presentation of renaissance period equal voices, a-cappella compositions as well as contemporary pieces. It also regularly works together with German orchestras on choral symphonic works. The choir's vast repertoire includes not only the German romantic works of composers such as Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms or Rheinberger, but the ensemble has also made important explorations into French music from the turn of the century. One important key component of the choir's work is the interpretation of contemporary music.

The girls and female choir has been a part of presentations of great oratory works such as Bach's "Passion of St. Mathew", Mendelssohn's "Paulus" and Orff's "Carmina Burana" and has given concerts in Leipzig's most important churches and concert halls. In 1999, the ensemble arranged the official ceremony for the Federal Republic of Germany's 50th birthday in Berlin's Reichstag and 2015 saw the choir sing for Chancellor Angela Merkel as part of the 80th German Welfare Day. The quality of the choirs is attested to by their successful participation in numerous national and international competitions as well as manifold radio, television and CD recordings.
