We have probably never looked forward to our Advent concerts as much as this year.
A Christmas without music, without (choir) concerts, is unthinkable for many of us, but became reality for the first time in December 2020 and also in the following year. That was not only a hard turning point for the choir nerds, who have been ringing in the Christmas season with Advent concerts without interruption since their time in the Mädchenchor or the Rundfunk-Jugendchor Wernigerode and now in our chamber choir.
In the meantime we tried a virtual concert – with an exciting end result, but only moderate success for the Christmas feeling.
This year it was finally: “O Freude über Freude” (“O joy over joy”). It couldn’t have fitted better! Finally we were able to get in the mood for the Christmas season together with the audience and festive choir music. Under the direction of Jean-Philippe Apel, choral music from four centuries was heard this year.
We were very happy to see you again at our concerts in Bad Sooden-Allendorf, Aschersleben and Bad Suderode and wish you a Merry Christmas!
