Dresdner Kreuzchor Biography (Wikipedia)

The Dresdner Kreuzchor is the boys' choir of the Kreuzkirche in Dresden. It has a seven century history. Today the choir has about 150 members from the age of 9-19 from Dresden and the surrounding region. The boys attend the Kreuzschule. They are also called "Kruzianer". The present director of the choir is Roderich Kreile, the 28th Kreuzkantor since the Reformation. From 1971 until 1991 Martin Flämig was the Cantor.

The repertoire of the choir includes compositions from the early Baroque (Heinrich Schütz, Johann Sebastian Bach), the early 19th century and modern work. Several recordings are available from Berlin Classics, Deutsche Grammophon and Capriccio. The choir often performs with the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra.

The choir sings Vespers almost every Saturday at 5 pm and on Sunday at 9:30 am in the Church Service. Every year they go on several concert tours in Germany, but also in Europe, Japan, South Korea, Israel, Canada, Latin America and the United States. Altogether the choir performs about 100 times every year, 50 Church Services and Vespers, 10 concerts at their church (including always Bach's Christmas Oratorio and St Matthew Passion and A German Requiem of Brahms) and 40 concert on tours. All in all 150.000 people are visiting the performances of the choir every year.
