Stuttgart Hymnus-Choir

The "Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben" look back on a history of nine decades. Paul von Lechier (1849–1925), one of the most striking Swabian entrepreneur personalities of his time, founded the choir on his own private initiative in 1900, inspired by the famous boys’ choirs of Leipzig and Dresden and the Berlin ‘Kurrende’, all of which he had encountered during his travels. The new choir soon enjoyed an excellent reputation in Stuttgart community life and musical circles and, after its refoundation in 1946 by Professor Gerhard Wilhelm, its long-standing director, became internationally recognized. Eckbard Weyand, musical director of the choir since 1987, carries on this tradition. In 1971 after various provisional arrangements, the choir was given its own house in Stuttgart. This building fulfills all requirements necessary for the choral work which is carried out here with much idealism. The 8- to 14-year-old boys and the young men, who mostly belonged to the choir as boys, often have to accept the burden of long journeys to choir practice or to performances after their school work is done. The ‘Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben’ usually performs in churches and concert halls in Baden-Württemberg, but concert tours to Other Parts of Germany and abroad take place regularly. In recent years the choir has performed with great success in Israel, France, Poland, Switzerland and in the Soviet Union (Riga).
