Choir Profile

The Audite Nova Choir of Zug (CANZ, Chor Audite Nova Zug) is one of the most eminent choirs in Central Switzerland. Founded in 1971 by Paul Kälin, it was under the artistic direction of Johannes Meister from 1999 to 2023, with Philipp Schmidlin taking over this position from 1 May 2023. The choir has some 100 singers, is well balanced among all the vocal ranges, and mainly performs works from the choral-symphonic repertoire. As the name “Audite Nova” would suggest, a significant part of the choir’s activity is devoted to performing modern and contemporary music.

In its wide range of concert programmes, as well as guest appearances, the choir sings together with renowned professional orchestras and soloists, and its concerts are held in prestigious concert halls and prominent historic churches.

The members of the choir are highly committed and share the common ideal of making music to the highest quality standards. Many of them take vocal lessons at the Music School of Zug or privately, which contributes both to their personal artistic development and the overall quality of the choir

The choir is a member of the Swiss Choral Union (Schweizerische Chorvereinigung, SCV) and the Swiss Federation Europa Cantat, SFEC.
