If you want to go fast - go alone

If you want to go far - go together


This slogan, which Neuer Kammerchor Heidenheim, South Germany, encountered for the first time on its first tour through South Africa and Namibia in 2014 has since become the motto of the choir.


Neuer Kammerchor Heidenheim under the direction of Thomas Kammel has grown since its foundation in 2005 to almost 70 young singers today. With a lot of passion, the young people rehearse consequently every Saturday morning and regularly inspire their audience with around 30 performances a year.

Regular participation in international choir competitions has earned the ensemble a number of awards in recent years. 22 gold medals and 2 silver diplomas have been won by the 16-20 year-olds to take home from the competitions.

Collaboration and exchange with other choirs is also regularly cultivated, last year two university choirs were taking part in big joint events in Heidenheim. The Youth Choir of the University of Pretoria in spring and the UniChor Munich in autumn.were guests in Heidenheim for big joint events.

For this year in May, a concert tour across South Africa is planned, where the NKC already toured in 2014 and made numerous contacts and friendships. And so this year, they will also resume the contacts from back then in Stellenbosch to the Paul Roos Gimnasium, in George to the South Cape Childrens Choir, in Durban to KZN Youth Choir together with Kearnsey College Choir, and especially to the UP Youth Choir in Pretoria as the main partner and deepen the encounters or find new friends. On the occasion of a specially arranged charity concert for the partly fire-damaged Carpe Diem School in George, the Neuer Kammerchor Heidenheim with its 65 singers and under director Thomas Kammel will present on May 23rd at 7 pm at the audience hall a program of its wide range with music from several centuries in different languages. For their 7th concert during the tour, the singers from Germany are guests at the Laddsworth Primary School in Pietermaritzburg Hilton for a joint concert with new friends from the Midlands Youth Choir under W. Silk.
