«schmaz» stands for «schwuler männerchor zürich», that is to say, «gay men's choir zürich». We consist of some 45 gay singers under our musical director and conductor, Ernst Buscagne.
We take pride in our diverse musical repertoire, reciting compositions from the Medieval through to the Contemporary Classic, folk-song, the American Songbook as well as 80's & 90's hits.
The outstanding level of musicianship is not only due to our singers commitment and rehearsal discipline, but also thanks to the unrelenting professional support and leadership of our musical director Ernst Buscagne, himself a professional Baritone soloist and experienced choral conductor. He follows in the footsteps of Karl Scheuber, the choir's founder and long term conductor.
