The Berlin Girls Choir qualified for the 10th German Choir Competition from 5 to 13 May 2018 in Freiburg i. Br. at the Landeschortreff Berlin 2017 with the rating “Excellent”. The jubilation and joy were great when the jury chairman Prof. Klaus-Jürgen Etzold announced the competition results at the final concert in the Großer Sendesaal of the rbb on Sunday, 8 October 2017. In category B (women’s choirs of 16 singers or more), the Vokalconsort achieved a proud 23.0 points.

During the final concert, the Vokalconsort once again sang the compulsory piece “Der Brief” by the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928-2016) and the folk song “Der Winter ist vergangen” in the setting by the German composer Volker Wangenheim (1928-2014) from their competition programme.

The Vocal Consort – young women between 19 and 28 years old – is just three years old. It formed in autumn 2014 after success with the Concert Choir at the 9th German Choir Competition in Weimar in the D2 category (youth choirs/girls’ choirs of equal voices). The oldest of them then had to leave the youth choir due to age, but wanted to continue singing in a choir of equal voices and under the direction of Sabine Wüsthoff. With their first competition participation and the forwarding to the next German Choir Competition, a big dream has now come true for the young women of the Berlin Girls Choir.
