With its almost 800-year history, St Thomas Boys Choir is the oldest cultural institution in Leipzig. Famous choirmasters such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Johann Hermann Schein, Johannes Kuhnau and Johann Adam Hiller helped to make the choir world-famous. The heart of the choir's musical work is the sacred music in the services and motets in St Thomas' Church.
Dating back over 800 years, the St. Thomas Boys Choir is Leipzig’s oldest cultural asset. The boys choir has been in existence since 1212, when the Margrave of Meissen founded the St. Thomas Augustinian Canons (Augustiner-Chorherrenstift zu St. Thomas). The young singers continue to devote themselves intensively to the care of church music, especially of Bach's inheritance.
The St Thomas Boys Choir performs in St. Thomas church Fridays at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 3 p.m., except for holidays and concert times. On their regular concert tours, they also carry the sound of the city of Leipzig to the whole world.
