Windsbach Boys Choir


Founded by Hans Thamm in 1946, the Windsbacher Knabenchor is widely regarded as one of the leading vocal ensembles in the world. The ensemble’s unique sound quality, its choice of works in a cappella concerts and, above all, its affinity to the spiritual music of all eras have helped this choir gain an outstanding reputation as a distinguished representative of Protestant church music throughout the world over the past decades.

Among the high points in the history of the Windsbacher Knabenchor are extensive concert tours to South America in 1983, 1985 and 1992, and throughout most of Western Europe as well. The choir accompanied Richard von Weizsäcker, then President of the Federal Republic of Germany, on his state visits to Norway and Malta in 1986 and 1990. The choir also accepted invitations to the United States and gave concerts in Washington, Philadelphia and New York. It went to the opera festival in Savonlinna in Finland, and to what was then the Soviet Union, where it scored a tremendous success in its joint performance with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in Leningrad (St Petersburg), Moscow and Vilna.
