ATTENDEES

Slide 1
"We sing the songs that make the whole world sing"
Our choir was founded in 1973 by the American Army. It has mastered many challenges since then as e.g. the departure of the Americans from Frankfurt. Many members have accompanied the choir much of the way, have gained experience and have grown with the choir. This dedication and willingness to constantly improve makes the sound of the GACC.

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.

Our Home

Our Home: Frauenfriedenskirche

Since 1995, the choir has been based in the Frauenfriedensgemeinde in Frankfurt, Bockenheim. Here our rehearsals are taking place in the parish hall and the church provides a perfect setting for our classical concerts and our "Singing Christmas Tree".

Since 1995, the choir has been based in the Frauenfriedensgemeinde in Frankfurt, Bockenheim. Here our rehearsals are taking place in the parish hall and the church provides a perfect setting for our classical concerts and our "The Singing Christmas Tree®".

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.
