“Exsultate – Jubilate”: Looking forward to a musical dialogue

Choral encounter: the Aachen Cathedral Choir and the Cologne Cathedral Choir perform together twice in June

The idea for a special choral encounter was born during a visit to Aachen Cathedral by the management team of the Cologne Cathedral Choir in March. Just a few weeks later, the idea turned into a double concert by both cathedral choirs on the left bank of the Rhine. Twice in June, the ensembles will enter into a sonorous musical dialogue with their boys and gentlemen. The title ‘Exsultate – Jubilate’ (Rejoice, rejoice) can be interpreted as a celebration of musical co-operation.

First, the Aachen Cathedral Choir will travel to Cologne Cathedral on Tuesday, 4 June, where the concert will begin at 8 pm. Admission is free, but a donation is requested.
Admission tickets are available online at:
The return visit to Aachen Cathedral will take place on Friday, 21 June, at 7 pm. Tickets priced at 10 euros (concessions 8 euros) can be purchased now:

The programmes offer a broad cross-section of romantic, baroque and contemporary works and impressively reveal the singers’ extraordinary abilities – a real treat not only for classical music lovers!

The Aachen Cathedral conductor Berthold Botzet and his colleague Eberhard Metternich are also very much looking forward to these choral encounters for personal reasons: This will be the last meeting of this kind for both of them, as both Botzet and Metternich will be retiring next year after many years of service.
