The listeners were surprised how they could slow down and get ready for the festive season thanks to an unusual program. The organizers succeeded in giving a concert that was not an everyday occurrence, and the audience in the parish church, which was filled to capacity, was enthusiastic right from the start.

Already the introduction with the bombastic work "ukrainian bell carol" by the blaservereinigung markt burkardroth, under the musical direction of manuela moller, was a bang to get out of the hectic christmas time.

The joy of music knew no bounds

With gerald benisch on manual and the well-known chorale prelude "wachet auf, ruft uns die stimme" (wake up, the voice calls us) BWV 645 by johann sebastian bach, the organ also had its say before all the performers and the audience heard georg friedrich handel’s "daughter of zion" from "the messiah intones.

In no other festive season are there as many concerts as in the advent season, and singing in the families is also cultivated.
