The Basilikamusik is currently maintaining 3 main ensembles:

Kids start playing in the

Junior Brass Band.


With our newly founded

Brass Class we are aiming to significantly improve our youth work and optimally prepare kids for playing in the band.

In the choir field we can offer an excellent youth work thanks to our Singing School Concept.

This shows in our plentiful youth-ensembles:



Children's Choir

Development Choir

Young Cantors

We also offer workshops and projects for those interested:

Family Choir

Project Choir


The Basilica Orchestra is mainly responsible for the musical accompaniment of liturgies and high masses together with the Basilica Choir.

The task of the Basilikamusik is the musical arrangement of liturgies in the Kevelaer parish St. Mary, an extraordinary community in our diocese. The long tradition of classic musical setting of choir and orchesta is characteristic for our pilgrimage church. 

However, in the contemporary practicing of church music, other forms become more and more prevalent and are taking their rightful place in the liturgy.

In this way, various different ensembles have grown in the Basilikamusik and are enriching our church music in many ways for god's praise and the communal celebration of faith.
