Gloria in Excelsis Deo – Festive Christmas Music
About this event
Christmas in the Erzgebirge region is one of Saxony’s most treasured traditions. Its unique celebrations include numerous customs centered around music.
The Renaissance town of Marienberg is at the very heart of historic Erzgebirge: this festive setting is ideal for this concert of classical and seasonal works with Germany’s prestigious Sächsische Bläserphilharmonie; an exquisite ensemble of wind instruments, pairing up with Germany’s leading youth choir, the Rundfunk-Jugendchor Wernigerode, as well as prominent soprano Ruth Ziesak.
