About the Windsbach Boys Choir

The traveling choir consists of 50 singers, ages 12–19, who live and board together with another 70 singing students at their school in Windsbach, Germany. Vocal training, instrumental instruction and a well-rounded education are the focus of the Windsbach boarding school.

With a focus on sacred repertoire, the choir covers a cappella works of all eras, as well as the great oratorios of J. S. Bach, Händel, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Brahms.

Esteemed conductor Martin Lehmann carefully arranges the concert programs to include a wide range of works from local as well as German and international composers.

The highly-acclaimed German boys choir has performed with the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Bamberger Symphoniker, and the Freiburger Barockorchester.

With numerous CD recordings, TV and radio broadcasts, and frequent invitations to important festivals, the choir maintains an outstanding position in the choral music scene.

As a musical and cultural ambassador, the Windsbach Boys Choir travels regularly within Europe, as well as to Japan, North and South America, Israel, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore and the People’s Republic of China.
