Berliner Philarmonischer Chor (Choir)

Founded as "Siegfried Ochs’ sche Gesangsverein": 1882 - Berlin, Germany
Became "Berliner Philharmonischer Chor": 1889

From a making music friend circle Siegfried Ochs created in December 1882 the “Siegfried Ochs’ sche Gesangsverein” (Siegfried Ochs' Singing Association), which later would become the Philharmonischen Chor. He led this choir from its inception until 1920. In February 1883, only three months after its establishment, the choir appeared in public for the first time. In 1884 choir sang at the Berliner Philharmonie the choral part in Flucht aus Ägypten by H. Berlioz. In March 1889 a firm contract was established between the Berliner Philharmonischen Orchester and the Ochs' Philharmonischen Chor. The choral society was conducted several times between 1888 and 1892 by Hans von Bülow.
