There's tea and cookies, a Bible story, and plenty of time to

play and talk. We go into nature, learn our church up

Of course, the nativity play on Christmas Eve) and enjoy

just spending time together. Once a year there is the opportunity for

Groovy, old, new songs, maybe even a musical, will be on the program in the Kurrende, the children's choir for children from 1st to 5th grade, and performed in church services.
In the Kurrende, through age-appropriate voice training, the children learn not only to use their voice correctly, but also to use notes and enjoy playing with rhythm instruments. This promotes development and creativity and is just a lot of fun.

I / my child can't sing? - Then you just haven't tried it properly yet.
I would like to come, but have no one to drive me? - Just give us a call, we will find a solution.
I do not dare. - Then bring a few friends with you, the more children sing in the carolers, the better it sounds and is fun.

Jugendchor - Sounds of Joy

Youth Choir - Sounds of Joy

The youth choir "Sounds of Joy" from Reichenbach in the Saxon Vogtland was founded in 2007. The 25 young people from Reichenbach, Mylau and Neumark meet weekly for rehearsals under the direction of Andreas Kamprad.

The repertoire focuses on gospel, rock, pop, folk and new sacred songs. "Sounds of Joy" sang regularly at church services and their own concerts, with piano or band accompaniment.

"Sounds of Joy" also played in classical choir concerts with orchestra, including A. Vivaldi's "Gloria" as well as cantatas and Christmas oratorio by JS Bach or G. Fauré's "Requiem". In 2009 "Sounds of Joy" could be heard at the radio service of the State Horticultural Show in Reichenbach. The highlight so far was a concert with a band during the 2011 Kirchentag in front of the Dresden Frauenkirche with more than 1000 visitors. In 2017 "Sounds of Joy" celebrated their 10th anniversary with a large open-air concert with soloists and a band. In 2020, the choir again organized an open-air concert together with soloists and band as part of the Organ Night on Reichenbacher Kirchplatz.

Concerts took "Sounds of Joy" to Mühlhausen, Görlitz, Boltenhagen and in 2018 to St. Leonhard (Tyrol).


All young people who are in the mood for new songs, gospel, pop, Taize ... are in the right place in the youth choir. Every Friday around 20 young people meet to sing together. A-capella, with piano or band, we organize, for example, the way of the cross for young people, church concerts and church services.


Rehearsal: Fridays 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
in the rectory, Kirchplatz 4, Reichenbach
Head: A. Kamprad


church choir

Music for the glory of God and for the joy of the audience belongs to the Christian community, like "Amen".

Our Mylauer congregation is no exception and has a church and a trumpet choir, which bring their skills to the fore on a wide variety of occasions.

Special highlights are joint concerts with other choirs and orchestras, such as the performance of the Christmas Oratorio.

It takes a lot of time, commitment and of course intensive rehearsals to rehearse the pieces of music.


Mondays at 7:00 p.m.

Mylau parish hall


trombone choir

The Neumark Trombone Choir has existed since 1998, the Reichenbach Trombone Choir was founded in 2007, and both choirs merged in 2012 to form the Reichenbach / Neumark / Mylau trombone choir.

The focus is on the musical design of the services. The trombone choir's repertoire ranges from early 17th century music to contemporary composers. We always like to play jazzy literature.


Thursdays 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Reichenbach parish hall
