Studiosi Cantandi Berlin in portrait

Studying singing is our motto, which is why we call ourselves studiosi cantandi. Founded in 1995 under the direction of Norbert Ochmann and Jake Walsh, the choir is now an integral part of Berlin’s choral scene and a member of the Chorverband Berlin. For several years now, we have been working closely with the Tonkollektiv HTW Berlin and the Kammerchor Bethanien and have given concerts together with them.

The works that we rehearse and perform at least twice a year in concert halls or churches (mostly in Berlin) cover a wide range of themes. They range from classical requiems, oratorios and masses to modern compositions and our own choral arrangements of contemporary popular music.

Great concerts need great orchestras. So we are regularly supported at our concerts by the Junge Philharmonie Kreuzberg, which comes together especially for our concerts with timpani and trumpets (and trombones and cellos and and and…). For demanding solo parts, we engage soloists from Berlin and the surrounding area.

In order to maintain and constantly develop the musical quality of the choir, musical nuances are worked on separately in rehearsals for the different registers. Individual voice training supports the singers in their vocal development and is regularly offered at Monday rehearsals. In addition to the regular rehearsals, there are two choir rehearsal weekends a year where we work on our pieces in greater depth.
