Classical Lesbians – that means a capella music filled with energy and joy – we are about 20 enthusiastic singers from Berlin who are united by their love for women and for classical choir music. We are love singing together and we are fond of our repertoire which includes madrigals, romantic songs as well as modern choir pieces. Why do we particularly like ancient music? Well, we’ve found that it often describes very accurately the ups and downs of lesbian love.
For us the choir also has a political side: we perform and we are visible as a lesbian choir. But we are not just passionate about music, we also love to socialise! After choir practise on Friday nights we regularly go to a pub in Berlin-Kreuzberg where we refill our batteries with beer and French fries.
Moreover, we retreat to North-Eastern Germany for our choir week-end once a year. Between forests and lakes we rehearse, eat, drink and sing by the fire site. Thus refreshed we return to Berlin where we organise a big concert every year.
