The “Male Choir Cäcilia Lindenholzhausen” will be holding the 1st Limburger Male Choir Festival that includes an International Male Choir Competition in the Josef- Kohlmaier Hall (Stadthalle Limburg ) on Sunday , 12 June 2016.

Limburg on the Lahn, which is conveniently situated between Frankfurt and Cologne, is rightly considered to be the heartland of male choral singing. The male voice choirs from Lindenholzhausen and the Limburg area are regular prize winners at national and international choir competitions.

Our judges Jürgen Fassbender, Jan Schumacher, Michael Blume and Dion Ritten (NL) have set new standards with their famous male choirs “Cantabile Limburg”, “Camerata Musica Limburg”, “Siegerländer Vocal Ensemble” and the “Mannenkoor Beeker Liedertafel”, and are guarantors for a sound and competent rating. The differentiated competition design as well as money prizes and special awards provide further incentive to participate in the 1st Limburger Male Choir Festival.
