The vocal consort of the Berlin Girls Choir qualified on October 7th 2017 in the regional chorus competition Berlin within the category B (women choires) for the participation in the 10th German Choir Competition (DCC) in May 2018 in Freiburg. The ensemble – young women aged 19 to 28 years – under the direction of Sabine Wüsthoff gained with 23.0 points the rating “excellent”.
The DCC is the funding measure of Deutscher Musikrat (German Music Council) for amateur choir music in Germany. Benchmarking and exchanges give non-professional choirs many opportunities to check out their musical ability and artistic expression. The event only takes places every four years. Throughout Germany it is considered as the most important and most ambitious competition for amateur choirs of all age groups and formations.
