About us


For  a 140 years now the  Johanniskantorei Frankfurt – Bornheim praises God singing in church services, concerts and last but not least in rehearsals. Johanniskantorei was founded in 1877 and is the oldest evangelical church choir of Frankfurt. Our musical home is the baroque Johanniskirche of Frankfurt – Bornheim. While we’re a friendly, multinational and sociable group, we take our music seriously and cultivate a wide repertoire of spiritual and secular choir music ranging from the works of the baroque to contemporary composers.

Johanniskantorei is a choir of the Evangelical Parish of Bornheim in Frankfurt . We are an amateur choir with about 50 active singers that sings regularly at church services and holds two annual concerts. We prepare for concerts once or twice annually with intensive rehearsal weekends in- and outside Frankfurt.

We also cultivate our social life. Regular choir activities include annual day trips and informal meetings after our rehearsals in the local pubs of Bornheim.

Would you like to join us? We cordially invite you to our rehearsals. We rehearse on Thursdays at 20.00 o’clock in the church hall, Johanniskirche, Große Spillingsgasse 24.
