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?

Please note: the festive concert in Raitenhaslach (September 23, 2018) is organised by the chamber choir formation of the TUM Choir. We are looking for particularly experienced and confident singers who can attend all rehearsals with certainty. You can register online and will be notified before the rehearsal starts.

Rehearsals for the TUM advent matinee will begin in July 2018. All interested singers please register via this online form.

As a project choir we practice specifically in preparation for upcoming concerts – therefore a separate registration for both projects is necessary. 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.
