800 Years of Thomana

For more than 800 years, the Thomana trifecta has combined the three outstanding institutions of St. Thomas Church Leipzig, Thomanerchor Leipzig and St. Thomas School Leipzig. Despite societal upheavals and changes, this group of three with its original duties remains bound together to this day: faithful to the motto “Believing — Singing — Learning”.

“The real meaning of our actions is to perform church music in the best way to benefit the audience. If we lose the spiritual root, the artistic roots will die”, says Thomaskantor Gotthold Schwarz.
