Calmus Ensemble

A perfect blend of sound, precision, lightness, and wit. These are the hallmarks of Calmus, now one of the most successful vocal groups in Germany. The ensemble has forged a refined sound, which few groups achieve. The wide range of sound colors, the joy in performing that the musicians convey on the concert platform, and their varied and imaginative programs are praised by the press time and time again.

The group held the audience…spellbound with its artistry.
