Kammerchor umrahmt Friedensgebet

Der Kammerchor der Schola Cantorum Leipzig hat die Ehre, das Friedensgebet in der Nikolaikirche am 9. Oktober 2015 zum 26. Jahrestag der Friedlichen Revolution musikalisch zu begleiten. Das Friedensgebet ist ein Höhepunkt in der Reihe der Veranstaltungen an diesem denkwürdigen Tag. Unter dem diesjährigen Motto „Band des Friedens“ hält Pfarrer Bernhard Stief die Predigt. Der Kammerchor singt Werke von Karl Jenkins, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy und Paul O´ Manz.

Das Friedensgebet findet am 9. Oktober von 17 – 18 Uhr in der Nikolaikirche Leipzig statt. Im Anschluss hält der Bürgerrechtler Wolfgang Templin die traditionelle Rede zur Demokratie. Das Friedensgebet ist zugleich Teil der zweiten Festwoche anlässlich 850 Jahre Nikolaikirche Leipzig sowie des Lichtfestes Leipzig am 9. Oktober 2015.

Die Schola Cantorum Leipzig (zu deutsche: Singschule) 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.

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.
