Youth Girls’ Choir of the Choir Academy Dortmund


The Youth Girls’ Choir of the Choir Academy at the concert house in Dortmund is made up of ambitious singers between the ages of 14 and 20, who have usually been active in the Choir Academy since the age of six. The choristers explore a wide variety of musical terrain with Volker Hagemann as their conductor. Literature from various eras as well as excursions into a cappella choral music are part of the programme. The focus lies on fun and passion, while maintaining a high level of quality. This is demonstrated by regular performances and concerts in the greater Dortmund area. In addition, the ensemble regularly participates in competitions and most recently won third prize in the category “youth choirs of equal voices” at the 2018 German Choir Competition in Freiburg with 21 out of a possible 25 points. The young singers can also be heard regularly outside Germany: concert tours have already taken the choir to Italy, Ireland and South England.
