70 years of Europe – et alors?
More than ever it is necessary to get to know our European neighbours – culturally, linguistically and as fellow human beings both through direct contact and through the intermediary of music. Oratorio de Noël is a music education project in which we shall once again cross Europe’s internal borders and look beyond our immediate cultural confines: choirs from German and French schools will explore the other country’s Christmas traditions and songs. Together they will travel to the border town of Breisach and with the support of members of the Balthasar Neumann Choir they will study works associated with Christmas. The general public will also be admitted. The final concert in Badenweiler on 2 December 2019 will feature Thomas Hengelbrock, the Balthasar Neumann Ensemble and around one hundred young singers, both male and female.
The project will be realized with the help of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation.
