Friends of the schola foundation.

Why is there a foundation Friends of the Schola Cantorum Karolus Magnus?

In order to keep the performance level of Gregorian chant high from a technical and artistic point of view, it is important to study and practise regularly. The Schola meets every Tuesday evening. With a view to covering the costs of their activities, the Schola organises recitals and sells its recordings. But the Schola need a stronger financial footing and that has resulted in the foundation of the so called
