The children of the MDR (Middle German Radio) children’s choir in Leipzig are no strangers to studio atmosphere. In addition to concerts, there are always radio, television and CD productions on the agenda for the choir. The musical support for the choir is comprised of rehearsing, voice training and music theory. The entire process begins at the age of four with acting, dance and song during the early years of musical education and ends with graduation. Founded in 1948 by Hans Sandig, in 60 years the choir has helped to write radio history and has won several international prizes. Until the summer of 2011, Gunter Berger provided the impulse and gave the beat. The choir has toured in concerts, school productions and workshops in Australia, Switzerland, the USA, and Poland.
