The Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben can look back on a 111-year tradition. The choir is supported by the Protestant Church District Stuttgart and is open to boys of all faiths. Trained voice teachers further the (ca. 200) singers with individual instruction. The repertoire is orientated towards sacred vocal music and includes a cappella works from the early baroque to the present, as well as oratorios, passions, and cantatas. In addition to the multi-faceted concert activities of the choir, the musical-liturgical presentation of worship services occupies a permanent place during the course of the year. Since April 2010 the choir has been conducted by Rainer Johannes Homburg.
