The Augustana Children’s and Youth Choirs are part of the “Sing- und Musikschule Mozartstadt Augsburg”. The children’s choir has an age range of 9-13 years, whereas the young people in the youth choir are between 13-23 years old. The aim of the choir’s work is to offer the children and young people a well-founded, varied and holistic vocal and musical education and to promote the joy of singing together. Not only does original literature from the past five centuries form part of the programme, but two to four-part arrangements of current and classical songs from jazz/rock/pop history are also rehearsed, sometimes with instrumental accompaniment, sometimes a cappella. In addition, folk songs form part of the repertoire.
Numerous activities, choir weekends and projects intensify the musical work, cultivate traditions and promote community. In recent years, the choir has travelled to the Czech Republic and Italy, among other places.
