Twin Choir

The Choir of the Liebfrauenkirche, Frankenberg, Germany

Church of Our Lady, Frankenberg

Stour Choral Society is keen to maintain strong links with its partner choir in Germany (Die Kantorei der Liebfrauenkirche, Frankenberg). This involves regular visits by members of both choirs to combine the music-making.

Kantorei visit May 2016

The May bank holiday will be a special one for the choir. On Thursday 26 May the Kantorei der Frankenberg (our Partnership choir) arrive in Manningtree to join in celebrating 45 years of partnership with the Manningtree & District - Frankenberg Association. A full programme for all involved includes a visit to Sutton Hoo and Woodbridge (on Friday) with a formal dinner in the evening at the Venture Centre. On Saturday morning those guests and hosts not involved in a music rehearsal can join in a conducted tour of Manningtree. Saturday evening takes the form of a Soirée for singers, hosts and guests; a traditional hog roast will be served and the evening will be interspersed with music from SCS and the Kantorei. All in all this will be a full programme for everyone to get together before the Kantorei depart for Germany on Sunday morning.
