Rehearsals will begin even before the start of the lecture period. If you are interested in joining the large choir Capella Carolina, keep March 14, 7:15 pm free! At this time, the first group audition of the new semester will take place in the Chemistry lecture hall (INF 252)! Immediately afterwards, we will start our joint rehearsal at 8 pm.

In summer semester 2024, Puccini's Motetto di San Paolino and his Messa di Gloria are on the program. Our concerts will take place in July 2024, one in Heidelberg (Universitätskirche St. Peter) and one in the Eglise Abbatiale d'Ebersmunster near Séléstat in Alsace!

Admission to Capella Carolina is possible until May 2nd at the latest. For this purpose, a group audition takes place before every Thursday rehearsal at 7:15 pm. We rehearse every Thursday from 8 pm to 10 pm in the large chemistry lecture hall (INF 252), and will also spend a rehearsal weekend in Baden-Baden on June 15/16. 

On Thursday, March 21 and March 28 there is no reherasal!


For those who already have some choir experience and very good vocal and musical skills, there is also the possibility to directly join our chamber choir Camerata Carolina. Camerata Carolina rehearses continuously (even during semester break!) every Tuesday from 8 to 10 pm in the basement hall of Max-Weber-Haus, ISZ, Ziegelhäuser Landstraße 17.

This semester, Camerata Carolina will be working on two different projects: J.S. Bach Mass in B minor and European choral music from six centuries. The choir is not only rehearsing for two concerts in Heidelberg in June and December 2024, but also for a concert tour to Italy and France in September 2024!

Auditions with the conductor Prof. Franz Wassermann are required after prior arrangement by email.

Our choir is composed of mainly students and is open to all people who are musically inclined and who enjoy singing in an open, international, concentrated yet relaxed atmosphere. As choirs of the "Internationales Studienzentrum" at Heidelberg University, it is very important for us to have international students feel welcome during our choir rehearsals, performances and celebrations. The “Camerata Carolina”, the prize-winning chamber choir of the university, welcomes new members with choir experience and very good vocal and musical qualifications. We also have a small troupe, the GSG9, which performs at private parties, company events and university galas. The music repertoire ranges from contemplative sacred to lively secular.
