A warm welcome

We, the singers of the choir ‘ Bremer Kantorei St.Stephani’ and their conductor, Tim Günther bid you a warm welcome.

After long hard times we will now go back to work. Those who are either completely vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 or currently tested negative are from now on allowed to rehearse together. This is a real pleasure for us and we are eager to re-establish our former level as soon as possible.

This means in concrete terms: The singers either bring their vaccination certificate once, or a valid proof of the day’s test – printed as a pdf or on their mobile phone – to each rehearsal.

Of course, new singers are also heartily welcome – some have already joined us during the pandemic. Knowledge in reading music, experience of singing in a choir and regular attendance of the rehearsals are a precondition to join us and share our pleasure in doing music.

Restart – and how it currently works

ormally, our regular rehearsals take place in the ‘Kapitelsaal der Domgemeinde’ (Domsheide 8, 28195 Bremen – this is one of the central transfer points in Bremen and very well to get to) on Tuesdays from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm.

We will come back to this date with all members as soon as the circumstances allow us to.

At present, only 16 people are admitted to the ‘Domkapitelsaal’, we currently use it – and thus the Tuesday – for rehearsals in small groups.

At the moment we meet on Monday evening; Testcontrol begins at 7:15 pm, we start to sing at 7:30 pm and end at 10 pm. Every second week of the month we end earlier to celebrate a ‘Happy Hour’, an informal get-together with a chat, some cheese or snacks and a glass of wine, juice or water.

Our program

On the 125th anniversary of his death, we are presenting “A German Requiem” by Johannes Brahms. A great piece, extraordinarily beautiful in sound, technically just as demanding. Anja Petersen sings the soprano part, Armin Kolarczyk the baritone, the chamber symphony plays with natural brass instruments – that makes the sound softer and quieter. Performance is on April 3, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.

We will also get back into the organization of church services in the Kulturkirche on the third Sunday of each month at 6 p.m.).

Our next concert date

Sunday, April 03, 2022, 7:30 p.m.:
Johannes Brahms – “A German Requiem”, Anja Petersen – soprano, Armin Kolarczyk – bass, Kammer Sinfonie – orchestra, Tim Günther – overall direction
in the Kulturkirche St. Stephani
