Lots of presents!
The new season has begun and Christmas presents are already coming down the chimney!
Probably the greatest gift we have received is Christie Starrett! She lives in the USA and is now our manager for North America. Christie Starrett is an independent arts manager with a portfolio of performing arts organizations, leading vocal groups and choral organizations. Professional associations range from IMG Artists, The Philadelphia and Baltimore Symphony Orchestras, the American Boychoir and Trinity Irish Dance Company. Illustrious clients over the years include Joshua Bell, the Emerson String Quartet, Steve Reich, The King’s Singers, Tenebrae Choir, Thomanerchor of Leipzig and more. We first met Christie in person on our US and Canada tour last April. She attended our concert in Norfolk, Virginia, and we immediately clicked!
And the presents keep on coming. Rejoice, ye Christians and all other friends of vocal music, greatly rejoice! Very soon we will release our new CD “Christmas Lights”. We spent the hottest days of the year recording luminous pieces centered around Christmas. You can now pre-order the CD and not only treat yourselves, but also your loved ones to some melodious Christmas cheer.
And the Christmas anticipation doesn't stop! This year, “Weihnacht a cappella” is coming to Halle/Saale for the first time. So this year, we are bringing our extended CD program entitled “Christmas Lights” to Leipzig, Halle/Saale and Hamburg:
December 19, 2023, 7:30 p.m. at the Ev.-Reformierte Kirche Leipzig, DE, Tickets here
December 21, 2023, 8:00 p.m. at the Laeiszhalle Hamburg, DE, Tickets here
On our website you can learn more about the new ticket options for the concerts in Leipzig and Halle. Leipzig- and Halle-Pass holders will get a 50% discount on their tickets. And for pupils, trainees and students we have come up with a very special offer.
Are you already in the mood for Christmas? If not, we have an exclusive sneak preview of our new CD for you:
You see, we are just like the gingerbread in the supermarket. We start celebrating Christmas a bit early in the fall. Of course, there are still other things before then. Chips, coke and some great concerts! We are looking forward to more performances with the lautten compagney BERLIN and another joint concert with the Rundfunk-Jugendchor Wernigerode. Our concert dates until the end of the year can be found, as always, at the end of this text. We are looking forward to seeing you at our concerts!
Your Calmus Ensemble
