A warm welcome to Deutsches Chorfest 2020

Every 4 years the Deutscher Chorverband (DCV, German Choral Association) invites singers, musicians and music lovers to Deutsches Chorfest to come together and transform one city into a big stage to celebrate the power of making music together.

In early summer 2020, Leipzig will be the capital of singing: From 30 April to 3 May the saxon city will host thousands of choral singers from all over the world. On stages all over the city choirs of all genres, types and sizes – from church choirs to vocal bands and from youth choirs to male choral societies – will have the opportunity to present themselves and their work in solo concerts.


Following the slogan “Chorfest for everyone” participants are also invited to sing in social institutions or church services and to take part in public singings and sing-along concerts.


To emphasize the meaning of communal singing from a young age on, the Deutsches Chorfest 2020 will put a special focus on children’s and youth choirs.


For more information on Deutsches Chorfest 2020 and the conditions of participation read our information sheet (PDF).


Registration for participation was only possible till 31 October 2019.
