Gewandhaus Children’s Choir

With the GewandhausKinderchor the Leipzig Gewandhaus has at the ready an ensemble of emerging young talent of its own which introduces 80 youngsters to the art of choral singing. Its repertoire ranges from folk song through sacred motets and orchestrally accompanied choral works to staged projects in which the children also perform as soloists. The chorus master is Frank-Steffen Elster, who was born in 1976 and who studied voice and choral conducting in Leipzig; he is also the Director of the Stadtsingechor zu Halle.
