About Muenchner MotettenChor

The Munich Motet Choir [Münchner MotettenChor] has a long tradition as one of the city’s most prestigious concert choirs. The choir has from its earliest days been associated with the Protestant St. Matthäus Church, where it regularly presents concerts and partici pates in church services. The group has also toured extensively throughout Germany and beyond. The Munich Motet Choir’s broad repertoire ranges from a cappella music to large symphonic works – from Early Music to avant-garde premieres. The choir regularly performs the great choral works of J.S. Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Verdi, and Britten, as well as popular classics such as Orff’s Carmina Burana. The choir’s name goes back to the year 1960, when Hans Rudolf Zöbeley brought together a group of students to provide musical illustration for a lecture on Heinrich Schütz. In the years since, the choir has grown significantly and today has approximately 100 members who dedicate their free time to ambitious choral singing. In addition to Hans Rudolf Zöbeley, the choir’s Artistic Directors have been Hayko Siemens (1998–2013) and, since 2013, Benedikt Haag.
