For almost 70 years the Kantorei Barmen-Gemarke e.V., since 1993 directed by Wolfgang Kläsener, has embodied discriminating choral music. Eminent in this region, the Kantorei also tours foreign countries, e.g. Israel in 2012 and England in 2016. The season’s six subscription concerts include both great classical and contemporary works, performed with various local instrumental ensembles. Events for school children help them appreciate selected works. The Kantorei demonstrates the diversity of sacred music in its monthly Cantata Worship Services. We normally perform in the Immanuel Church Arts Center, with which we are closely linked. Our efforts are paid for with ticket sales, patrons’ financial support, and the choristers’ dues. Many listeners have been loyal over many years and we welcome every new hearer!
