The Munich English Choir

The “Munich English Choir” are semi-professional singers who have a passion for English choral music. The choir was founded in 2010 by the English Organist and Choirmaster Stephen Norton and has about 30 members.

The highlight of each year is the Advent Carol Service, sung on the eve of the 1st Advent, at the Abbey Church of St. Ottilien, near Eresing.  This is closely followed by the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols, sung on the 3rd Wednesday of December, at St. Willibrord Church, in Munich.  The choir sings regularly for Choral Evensong and performs concerts, including in the "Lange Nacht der Musik", as well as undertaking tours abroad.  The tour in 2017 to England, singing in Gloucester, Birmingham and Coventry cathedrals, was particularly well received.

Please browse our calendar to find out about upcoming events.
