This is the first cantata church service after the contemporary shutdown in March. Only few seats are available. If you want to participate, you have to register under This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The church service was broadcast via livestream und can be seen and heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIcKKp9Gioc: www.ekbo.de/live.

According to our current planning, the cantatas on September 19 and October 3 shall be performed by soloists. In the cantata on October 17 the Bach Choir is supposed to sing the final chorale, and the Reformation Cantata on October 31 shall be performed by a chamber music formation of the choir. For the moment we can't make any forecasts for further dates. As medium-term planning is also not really possible and not relieable, we kindly ask you to visit this website again before the church services in order to learn if and how they will take place.
