Ein seltsames Jahr, in dem nichts so war wie sonst, liegt hinter uns. Fast alle unsere Konzerte mussten ausfallen, Proben wurde zu einer logistischen Meisterleistung und unser Leiter Georg hat wohl so viele Konzertprogramme und -konzepte erdacht, angepasst, wieder verworfen usw. wie noch nie. .Besonders jetzt in der Adventszeit fehlt uns allen das gemeinsame Singen sooo sehr! Umso dankbarer sind wir, dass zumindest eine kleine "Abordnung" von uns am Samstag in St. Remigius singen durfte. Im Geiste waren wir alle dabei und sind glücklich, dass auch die Pandemie uns nicht davon abhalten konnte, traditionsgemäß den Menschen am Samstag vor Weihnachten eine Freude zu machen. Da hat es unseren Tenor Karl in den Fingern gejuckt und er hat uns dieses kleine C(h)orona-Weihnachts-Gedicht beschert! 😊👏🌟🎶.DANKE an alle, die in diesem Jahr den Chor so gut es eben ging mit Leben erfüllt und den Zusammenhalt erhalten haben, an Georg für seine unermüdliche Kreativität und den Durchhaltewillen den immer neuen Einschränkungen zum Trotz (dirigieren, singen, orgeln, choreographieren - alles kein Problem für ihn 😉) und an alle Menschen, die Musik in den verschiedensten Formaten möglich gemacht haben! .Wir wünschen euch allen gemütliche Weihnachtstage im kleinen Kreis und gehen mit Zuversicht ins neue Jahr, dass wir hoffentlich in nicht allzu ferner Zukunft da wieder ansetzen können, wo wir im Frühling aufhören mussten! 🌟👋🎵🎶.#whatayear #wirgebennichtauf #chorpoesie #zusammenhalt #kulturtrotzcorona#atempause #acappella #orgel #laufplan #aufstellungdie31. #remigius #bonn #danke @ Bonn, Germany ...

Choir


The Bonner Kammerchor is a mixed semi-professional choir - about 40 ambitious singers of different ages and professions who meet to sing on a weekly basis. Through this continuity in rehearsal, the choir seeks to continually improve their quality of performance, to heighten their enthusiasm for choral singing as well as deepening their vocal skill and musical experience. Both musically and artistically, Bonner Kammerchor aims for high professional standards. Voice training and exercises to maintain a homogeneous choral sound are integral parts of rehearsing.

The choir's repertory ranges from Gregorian chant to Contemporary compositions, and over the years it has achieved an excellent reputation for its authentic and lively interpretations of works from all periods. Its concerts are well-known for their impressive, sometimes surprising programming concepts.

Bonner Kammerchor's regular performances in and around Bonn, tours throughout Germany and other European countries, recordings with German radio stations, several invitations to festivals and the successful participation in a number of national and international choral competitions have made the ensemble a cultural figurehead for Bonn as well as for Germany.

The choir's Artistic Director since 2012 is Georg Hage. Bonner Kammerchor is a member of the Association of German Concert Choirs (Verband Deutscher KonzertChöre, VDKC).
