The German Language School Concordia Children’s Choir has participated in the Christkindl Market every year with the exception of the very first. The choir is made up of students from the German Language School Concordia who range in age from Junior Kindergarten to Grade Eight.
The students spend each Saturday morning from September through June learning German at Grand River Collegiate Institute. After classes end, choir members rehearse for about an hour, learning traditional German carols and folk songs, as well as the latest children’s music popular in Germany. Participants have the opportunity to learn, rehearse and perform in cabarets, concerts and musicals. The choir is active in the community singing at such venues as German Pioneer Day, local Christmas parties, senior’s homes, the Kiwanis Festival and even on the radio.
Our Choir Director is Angelika Werner. She is a certified elementary teacher who also teaches at the German Language School Concordia.
