Youth Choir Kaufungen


The Youth Choir Kaufungen is part of the Kaufungen Protestant Singing School, which was founded in 2002. The young people are between eleven and 18 years old. Most of them already have a long singing experience behind them, having started in “Mice Choir” (from age four), then “Sparrow Choir” and Children’s Choir. From the 6th grade on, choir members change to the youth choir, where they sing under the direction of district cantor Martin Baumann until they graduate from high school or start their apprenticeship. Stylistically, the Youth Choir Kaufungen cultivates a broad repertoire from early music to the present, from classical music to arrangements of pop pieces, and from sacred to secular music. Musicals are also performed regularly. In order to experience oratorio and cantata performances, the Kaufungen Youth Choir often arranges concerts and church services with the Kaufunger Kantorei. Otherwise, the choir devotes itself to numerous performances and activities of its own and has earned a good name for itself in the region.
