The musical stylistic spectrum ranges from Schumann through Verdi and Vaughan-Williams to modern musicals.

"Caribbean Mass" by Glenn McClure
GACC performs the "Caribbean Mass" by Glenn McClure for the Hessen Rundfunk.
A Concert mass with music adapted in part from Latin American folk melodies. The text is based in part on the writings of St. Francis of Assisi. The performance of the Caribbean Mass was a European premiere.
„Misatango“ by Martin Palmeri
The tango-Chorale "Misatango" by the Argentine composer Martin Palmeri goes straight into your ears and under your skin. With the passions and the favorable wistful sounds of "Misatango", Martin Palmeri has succeeded in creating a wonderful composition from the Nordic Chorale text and Argentine tango Nuevo.
"H.M.S. Pinafore" by Gilbert & Sullivan
"H.M.S. Pinafore" belongs to one of the most popular pieces of the composer Gilbert & Sullivan when the song "A British Tar" found its way into the modern film world. This song was sung in the Star Trek movie "The Uprising", as well as in Indiana Jones ("The Last Crusade").

The church, a symbol of peace that had become stone, was erected between 1927 and 1929 on poor ground, so that by the sinking of the floor cracks in the masonry had formed and windows and doors had warped. Therefore, in 2018 the church had to be closed for renovation and the GACC concerts took place at other locations. After two years of restoration the Frauenfriedenskirche now shines in new splendor and is open to the public again! On November 22nd, 2020, the new altar made of bronze cast designed by Tobias Kammerer was sanctified by Bishof Dr. Georg Bätzing. We are looking forward to performing our next concerts in Frauenfriedesnkirche again.
The listed church with the 12m high mosaic statue of Regina Pacis above the main entrance is dedicated to the Mater Dolorosa. The church was erected on the initiative of the Catholic women of Germany under the leadership of the Catholic German Women's Federation (KDFB) with donations from women from all over Germany as a memorial to peace and a memorial to the fallen during the First World War. In the courtyard of honor, the names of over a thousand fallen soldiers of both world wars recall the horrors of the war and testify to the suffering of the soldiers and their families.
