As a tribute to the ever active musical relationships between Bavaria and Quebec, Montreal’s Maison symphonique will welcome the Audi Youth Choir, singing under the baton of Maestro Kent Nagano, on December 12 and 13, 2017. The program of these two Christmas concert evenings will boast Bach’s Magnificat, Angerer’s Toy Symphony, and Saint-Saëns’s Christmas Oratorio, as well as a selection of traditional Christmas songs from Bavaria. Secure your tickets here.

The Audi Youth Choir is a young choral ensemble that was created in 2007 in Ingolstadt thanks to the contribution of the eponym automobile group. Dedicated to offering a solid musical education to young adults between 16 and 27 years of age, who are recruited upon auditions throughout Germany and Austria, the choir members undergo intensive choir rehearsals as well as individual lyric singing training by professional musicians.

The Audi  Youth Choir, with its artistic director is Martin Steidler, has received numerous prizes and overwhelmingly positive critics. In 2013, they recorded a CD under the direction of Maestro Nagano.

Jointly with the Goethe Institut Montreal, the State of Bavaria Quebec Office is proud to invite the Audi Youth Choir to the traditional Christmas party of the German community in Montreal, taking place at 5pm on December 14, at the Goethe Institut – all are welcome!
