The equal-voice vocal ensemble VOCALISA Dresden was founded in 2002 by Claudia Sebastian-Bertsch and has been part of the Heinrich Schütz Conservatory since 2018. A large part of the members are former singers of the Dresden Girls' Choir who continue to enjoy singing together.
The voices of the young women have already been heard at the Dresden Music Festival, in the Dresden Frauenkirche and in the Gewandhaus Leipzig, among others. Furthermore, numerous charity and benefit concerts adorn the choir's concert calendar. In addition, there have been concert tours and choir encounters as well as joint concerts with choirs, orchestras and soloists from the USA, Canada, Korea, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Germany.
At the "XIII International Competition for Advent and Christmas Music" (2003) in Prague, the vocal ensemble was awarded the "Silver Ribbon". In 2010, the CD "Töne mein Gesang" was released.
Since its 10th anniversary, VOCALISA Dresden has maintained lively contact with the Potsdam vocalists. Both ensembles united their voices for the Dresden Castle Night in 2014. The vocal ensemble, whose extensive repertoire ranges from the works of Old Masters to contemporary compositions, offered further musical concert highlights during the 50th anniversary of the Dresden Girls' Choir of the JKS (2015).
In June 2016, the ensemble took part in the East Saxon Choir Competition of the Saxon Choir Association, where it was awarded a "Golden Diploma" and the special prize for the best interpretation of a German folk song.
