Audi Jugendchorakademie






























The Audi Jugendchorakademie based at Ingolstadt in Bavaria is both a youth choir and a choral academy founded in 2007 as part of Audi AG’s Audi ArtExperience cultural project. It has already become a widely-recognised institution performing at venues as far apart as Singapore and Canada. Its repertoire is not tied to any particular era, so that in addition to works such as the Bach Passions, it has sung in symphonies by Gustav Mahler and Charles Ives, and in works by composers including Haydn and Dvořák. In contemporary repertoire, it premiered Arche by Jörg Widmann at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie under Kent Nagano, a frequent guest conductor.

The 70 or so singers in the Audi Jugendchorakademie are all aged 16–27. To qualify for membership, they must be musically talented, committed, have previous choral experience and pass an audition. The choir’s Artistic Director since 2008 has been Martin Steidler, Professor of Choral Conducting at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich.
