Profile

Intercultural understanding through sacred and secular choral music!

The experience of working together on demanding and fulfilling music unites us.

We offer a musical home for people from all over the world living temporarily or permanently in the Rhine-Main region.

The Trinity International Concert Choir (TICC) e.V. began as “The Messiah Project” in 2011 and has since established itself in Frankfurt as a uniquely international choir. Concert programs in recent years have included Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s St. John Passion, Dvorak’s Mass, Fauré’s Requiem, Bilder der Hoffnung (paintings of hope) by Petr Eben, Rossini’s Petite Messe solennelle, Mozart’s Requiem in the version by Robert D. Levin, Telemann’s Day of Judgement, All the Ways of a Man by Knut Nystedt and, most recently, Die Geburt unsers Herren Jesu Christi by Rogier Michael.

TICC rehearses at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Frankfurt, an international, English-speaking parish whose former musical director, Dr. Jerrode Baker Marsh, was the impulse and guiding inspiration for the choir. Frankfurt’s multicultural society is reflected in the composition of the choir: currently about 55 singers from 13 different nations sing together. At Christmas, we usually present mixed programs of Advent songs and carols from our members’ home countries.

After single-handedly organizing the choir for its initial project performances of “Messiah” and then building and directing it afterwards, in 2015 Dr. Jerrode Baker Marsh passed the baton to Michael Muche. Through his intensive, sensitive work, the choir continued to develop and our special TICC voice emerged. After the Corona-related singing break, which was only bridged by online substitute rehearsals and exercises outside in the churchyard, we are currently starting the next choir phase in June 2022 under the leadership of our new choir director Steffen-Michael Bücher.
