Bavarian Radio Chorus

The Bavarian Radio Chorus was founded in 1946. Thanks to its remarkable stylistic versatility, this ensemble enjoys the highest regard world-wide.

Since 2003, Mariss Jansons has served as the Chief Conductor of the Bavarian Radio Chorus and Symphony Orchestra, supplemented by Howard Arman, who was appointed Artistic Director of the chorus in 2016.

Guest appearances have taken the chorus to Japan as well as to such top European festivals as the ones in Lucerne and Salzburg. Major European orchestras like the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Concertgebouworkest in Amsterdam and the Sächsische Staatskapelle in Dresden hold their collaborations with the BR-Chor in high regard. The chorus has performed in the past under the direction of such distinguished conductors as Andris Nelsons, Bernard Haitink, Daniel Harding and Riccardo Muti.
