The Cologne choir ensemble fiat ars was founded in 2006 by Jonas Dickopf, who is also a member of the CASA HOGAR team, and has been directed by him since then. Today fiat ars is considered one of the best choir ensembles in the Rhineland. The equally astute and fearless programs that Jonas Dickopf creates together with fiat ars and its highest standards of tonal quality, make the ensemble one of the most interesting hosts of sacred choral concerts within the (highly competitive) music scene of Cologne.
Since its foundation in 2006, the choir has developed a considerably broad repertoire of sacred choral music from all epochs (with a certain emphasis on contemporary compositions). Concert tours have so far taken fiat ars to Mainz, Metz, Kehl, Saarbrücken and Worms (2012), to the Netherlands (2013), to Hamburg and Lübeck (2015), Bavarian (2017) and England (Liverpool, Sheffield, Nottingham, 2019).
In Cologne and the surrounding area, fiat ars can regularly be heard with full-length concert programs and in masses or other liturgies – in the cathedral, in the twelve Romanesque churches as well as in suburban parishes, and of course “at home” in the Church of John XXIII, the Church of the Catholic University Parish of Cologne.
