Jauchzet, frohlocket! In the Christmas concert thirty years ago, performed in the the newly renovated Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Alison Browner was the Alto Soloist in both the Bach Magnificat and Weihnachtsoratorium Parts 1 and 2. To celebrate Christmas 2019 the Goethe Choir will perform Parts 2, 5 and 6 of the Weihnachtsoratorium in the NCH and is delighted to welcome as soloists not only Alison but also her daughter Hannah Gries, Soprano; as in 2018 Dustin Droszdiok will sing Tenor/Evangelist and the Bass will be Brendan Collins. More details of the concert can be found on our website at http://goethechoir.ie/events. Tickets are available from the NCH but to mark this very special occasion we are offering Choir members who sang in 1989 2 tickets for the price of 1. (Contact firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name and address or email).
A project is underway to make available on the website a list of all concerts sung by the Goethe (Institut) Choir from 1966 on and to digitise material relating to the Choir. The 2019 Christmas Concert will surely evoke memories of previous performances of the Weihnachtsoratorium and we invite you to share those memories and score markings with the wider Goethe Choir community via the website.
