Welcome to Studentenchor Heidelberg! We are a friendly and open-minded choir, consisting mostly of students and alumni from the University of Heidelberg. Every term we rehearse as well as perform a new programme. Our choir distinguishes itself by a variety of styles, alternating between classical choir repertoire and pop-music or even musicals. Because for us the most important aspect is the fun of making music together, we spend a weekend every term outside of Heidelberg, rehearsing and socialising. Although most singers are still studying at University of Heidelberg, we are an independent and self-financing choir.
I never sang/did not sing in a choir for a long time. Am I still allowed to join?
Everyone is welcome, no matter with our without experience. Because we think the joy of singing in a choir should be open to everyone, we do not audition. It is only important that you have fun singing and are ready to learn and experience something new.
Can I simply drop by the rehearsals?
Of course you can! During the first three rehearsals each semester everyone is allowed to simply drop by. Rehearsals start at the end of the term-break. The first three rehearsals in Wintersemester 16/17 are on the 20th, 27th of October and 3rd of November. Only after these three rehearsals you have to decide whether you stay or not. If you come across our choir later and want to join in, you should contact our conductor María Rodríguez Luengo by e-mail to ask her whether it is possible or not. You can find her e-mail in the „contact“-section.
I am already employed/an apprentice/not at uni. Can I still join in?
Yes, you can! Although most of our singers are students at University of Heidelberg, it is not a requirement. Some of your singers are already finished with university and are still part of the choir while others found us even later.
What if I cannot attend every rehearsal
You should not miss more than three rehearsals, so you are able to perform well during the concerts. If you know you cannot make the Probenwochenende, you should not miss any rehearsal.
Is there any cost?
Since we are an independent, registered society, we self-finance by membership-fees. The cost is 25€ each term. If you want to come along to the Probenwochenende (two nights with full pension), you will have to pay another 55€.
