What is the International Choir?

The International Choir was launched at the International Office of the University of Bonn in winter semester 2010/11 to support and connect international students. Ever since its foundation, it has been directed by Martin Kirchharz.

Part of the choir’s repertoire are German and international songs from across the globe. Singers are always welcome to suggest new songs.

International Choir 10-Year Anniversary

Winter semester 2021/22 was the start of the International Choir’s anniversary year. Since its first Christmas concert held at the International Club ten years ago, our group has grown from 20 to 100 singers.

The anniversary year also saw the creation of “International & Personal”, a series of videos introducing the choir and international singers. Current and former choir members and students from partner universities helped to jointly realize a big video project to “Man in the Mirror”, published on April 12, 2021.

International Choir Video Projects

Various video projects were launched during the coronavirus pandemic, enabling singers to stay in touch and promote a sense of community.
