Welcome to the Speyer Cathedral Singing School, an institution that allows children and adolescents of varying ages the chance to receive a comprehensive vocal-musical education. The continued production of talented young singers is first and foremost achieved through early childhood vocal education. As such, the goal of Speyer Cathedral Music is the foundation of a continuous musical education for children and young people; this idea of continuity begins in our Musicgarden from the early age of 1½, continues with early childhood vocal education, and then feeds into the various age groups of the children’s and youth choirs. Underpinning our approach are various aims. Firstly, there is the need to awaken the joys of singing in the children, and to help them get to know their voice as a musical instrument. Secondly, by bringing them into contact with choral music, a feeling for the richness and profundity of music will be promoted. Thirdly, through their exposure to “sacred music”, it is hoped that the children will experience a deeper Christian faith, a desire to keep this faith alive and to proclaim it in song.
We are very happy to meet children who are interested in the various offerings of the Speyer Cathedral Singing School!
