The Figuralchor Frankfurt works in close co-operation with the Hessischen Rundfunk, at which the choir was created 1966. The choir includes about 70 singers. Since its establishment in 1966, the choir has been led by Professor Alois Ickstadt. The choir pursues its artistic goals on the basis of a long-term co-operation of its members, who receive their vocal training by individual process with Professor Gerhard Meier. The choir's repertoire covers special works of the a-capella-music from the Renaissance to the modern time, as well as works from the oratorio literature.

The choir has co-operated with the conductors Y. Ahronovitch, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Gerd Albrecht, Michael Gielen, Dmitri Kitaenko, Marcello Viotti, Hugh Wolff, Hans Zender, John Nelson, P. Carignani and others.
