More information on the Advent concerts

Sing along!

We are always happy to welcome new singers interested in performing with the Symphonisches Ensemble München (Symphonic Ensemble of Munich). Students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends of the Technical University of Munich are welcome to join us!

  • Do you already have experience singing in a choir?
  • Are you willing to independently prepare pieces?
  • Do you have time to attend all (if at all possible) rehearsals?

Sign up (via Xing)! (Unfortunately, registration for rehearsals for the Advent concerts is already closed.)

As a project choir we practice specifically in preparation for upcoming concerts. Auditions are held at the end of the first two rehearsals. This alone allows us to harmonize with each other with just a few highly concentrated rehearsals.
