joined Legato: 1997
The Mainsirenen ("River Main Sirens") formed in 1987. Still going strong, they're now one of the longest-serving gay choirs in Germany. Right from the outset they've believed that the whole point of singing in a gay choir is to provide a gay take on life - both in the music and in the lyrics. And it's a take which has proved extremely popular, as witnessed by the choir's audience today which is broader than ever. Anyone looking for a snapshot of modern "gay identity" need look no further - this cabaret-choir offers a razor-sharp image. The Mainsirenen attended their first "Various Voices" in London in 1989. Back then there were only 11 members - now there are over 40! Founding father Luzian Lange is still, however, Choir Director.
