‘Silent Auction’ and ‘Odd Socks’ concert ahead of Parish Choir’s Berlin trip

The St George’s Parish Choir is getting ready to embark on its first choir tour since 2018. Plans to sing in Cambridge in 2020 were denied by the outbreak of Covid, so this is really quite an experience for us all.
Our tour involves four performances: We sing Evensong in Luisen Kirche, a service of which they have no experience and are really looking forward to hearing. We’ll sing Stanford in C and Beati Quorum Via.
Saturday June 29th sees us singing in the Trinitas Kirche, a concert for their weekly Music Hour. This will feature repertoire including Goodall’s ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’ with the solo sung by Matthew Loughrey, Tippett 5 Negro Spirituals, and works by Bruckner, Stanford, Chilcott et al.
In the evening, we are performing in the ‘Night of Choirs’ concert in the Kultur Forum (beside the Philharmonie’ in the centre of Berlin.
Sunday Morning, we sing Festival Eucharist in the Luisen Kirche, Schubert in G is the setting.
In between all of this, we have sight seeing tours: Checkpoint Charlie, TV Mast, Olympic stadium and more, as well as, I’m sure, visits to McDonalds and other hostelries as well as some chorister games.
Do please feel free to come to the Odd Socks concert on June 7th at 7:30pm, where the choir will perform items outside of their normal skills. We will also hold the final day of the fundraising auction, so do bid and help us to fund raise for this tour. More information here https://www.32auctions.com/stgeorgeschoirberlintrip
