Every performance of a Bach cantata involves costs in the four-digit range. Part of this sum is normally recovered by the collection at the end of the cantata service in the in der Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. As long as "normal" church services with the choir and a live congregation are not possible, we ask for your charitable donation in order to maintain alive, at least via livestream broadcast on the internet, the tradition of Bach cantata church services, which began 60 years ago and has now for the first time been interrupted by the current pandemic. 

The Bach Choir at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is a registered association and an accredited nonprofit organisation. Would you like to support us with a donation?
