Patrons of the Festival


“The acquisition of a patronage supports the work of initiatives and associations. Thereby personalities from different industries like politics, economy and culture are representing our festival to the public. We are very grateful, that we were able to win some prestigious patrons for our festival throughout the last few years. “

Singing together connects across language and national boundaries. The International Children’s Choir Festival Dresden gives young people this experience at a high musical level. I am pleased to be the patron of this event.

Marek Janowski


The German writer E.T.A. Hoffmann once said: „Where language ends, music starts.” Music is a language everyone understands, it connects and overcomes boundaries. The International Children’s Choir Festival Dresden is a very special example for this.

Dr. Eva-Maria Stange


“Music is an universal language that doesn’t need translation. It empowers people to understand their surroundings imminently and to communicate with others – the young musicians and their audience will certainly show and experience that in a very imposing way.”

Michael Sanderling


“Music is a language, that is understood by all man kind around the globe, that overcomes borders and boundaries and unites each and everyone.”


“The biannual festival enriches the musical life of our city in a tuneful and at the same time sustainable way.”
Helma Orosz


“As patron of the festival in the year 2010 I wish all the participants many beautiful musical experiences, unforgettable personal encounters and the most of fun for the joint adventures.”
Prof. Kurt Masur


“I’m cheerful that our young philharmonic singers initiated a International Children’s Choir Festival for the second time now, to make it happen, that children and young adults from Australia, China, Hungary, South Africa and Germany are able to produce some extraordinary music together.”

Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos


“The working with young people involved in choir communities is especially pursuing the maintenance of the idea to connect between nations, to show young people from other countries our culture and its treasures and to encourage the feeling of togetherness.”

Prof. Peter Schreier
