Weihnacht A Capella - Holiday concert on Facebook and YouTube
It’s unconceivable: the time of Advent and Christmas without music. It shouldn’t be this way, that’s why we have prepared something special for you. We’re very happy to announce our latest virtual concert today:
From the Nikolaikirche Leipzig
Christmas A Cappella
Monday, 12/21/2020, 7:30pm CET/1:30pm EST on YouTube & Facebook
Here you can watch the concert.
You find the programme here.
We’re presenting a completely new program with Christmas music from more than 700 years. Fascinating collages, traditional songs and some brand-new arrangements will get you in the right mood for this very special Christmas in 2020. You will hear many well-known melodies, but we have some wonderful musical discoveries ready, too. Our singing shall lead you to forget the daily worries, shall comfort you where it’s needed, and shall make community where it is lonely. And it shall also put a smile on our faces... We’re bringing festive harmony to your home and we’re looking forward seeing you there!
Meanwhile, virtual concerts are nothing peculiar anymore. For Calmus, this is going to be the fourth virtual concert in 2020. We consciously decided to stick to the presentation of our former concerts, have spared no efforts in picture, sound, cut and light – and have chosen against a payment barrier, because we’re so thankful for the healing voluntary support of the last concerts!
Because so many concerts were cancelled over the last 9 months we have lost a lot of income and therefore we kindly ask you to buy a virtual concert ticket for „Christmas A Cappella“. Please donate the amount of your choice

By the way: Exactly at the time of transmission on Dec 21 at 7:30pm CET we would have sung the same program at the same venue for our audience in Leipzig – that’s what was planned originally. But we remain positive: Now, our concert can shine out into the whole world and we’re really looking forward welcoming you to „Christmas A Cappella“ and to our live chats on YouTube and Facebook during the concert!
