The choir of the Potsdam music school „Johann Sebastian Bach" was founded in 1990 by Marion Kuchenbecker who still directs and conducts the choir today. It has developed into an ensemble of about 60 members.
In addition to an a-cappella repertoire from the Renaissance up to the 19th century and selected works of the 20th century, the choir also devotes itself to the development of choral-symphonic works. In a good cooperation with the youth symphony orchestra of the music school, which has already existed for several years, works by Händel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Franck, Puccini and Gounod have been performed.
Numerous concerts in Potsdam and cities in the state of Brandenburg document the choir's artistic development. The choir has performed several times in the Nikolaisaal Potsdam as well as in the big churches of the city.
Concert tours have led the Mixed Choir to North Rhine-Westphalia and to successful concerts in Hungary.
The choir has given concerts in Rostock, places of Mecklenburg and has been a frequent guest at the summer music festivals in Blankensee and Lehnin Monastery.
The choir's varied a cappella programme currently includes sacred and secular choral works by Schütz, Monteverdi, di Lasso, Hassler, Brahms, Grieg, Rachmaninow, Distler, Nystedt, Rutter, as well as international sages and spirituals.
Various CDs were produced with the Mixed Choir.
Intensive rehearsal work includes two annual rehearsal weekends in Potsdam and outside Potsdam. It is also celebrated well and gladly once.
