The musical arrangement of the motets, a musical form of worship in St. Thomas Church Leipzig on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, as well as in Sunday worship is one of the core tasks of the Thomanerchor Leipzig. The preparations, which include also a Bach Cantata on Saturday, determine a large part of everyday life. The singers share and appreciate the wonderful feeling of attracting crowds of more than 2000 people a week with their music together with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, vocal soloists, and the organist of the St. Thomas Church Leipzig.
The choir’s performances in the St. Thomas Church Leipzig on high church holidays and also the annual performances of Bach‘s Passions, the Christmas-Oratorio and the Mass in B minor create a lasting impression. Also the choir traditionally opens the annual Leipzig Bach Festival in June each year.
The Thomanerchor Leipzig travels regularly to prestigious concert venues. Regional, nationwide and around the world the Thomaner inspire audiences with their variety of programs ranging from Gregorian chants to modern composers, as well as with their brilliant and distinctive interpretation of Bach‘s work. They remain highly regarded guest performers in the international music centers.
Through numerous audiovisual and other media productions the Thomanerchor Leipzig is able to be experienced outside of the concert hall.
