The second annual Interfaith Concert and Open House on Dec 12th was well attended and enjoyed by members of all faiths. This year, the Sukkat Schalom Jewish Community joined the concert. The evening's program began with the cheerful sounds of the Brass Ensemble, followed by beautiful Jewish melodies, traditional Catholic music, modern Christian songs and Gospel music. The event ended with festive Christmas caroling by all communities. Members of all the Hüttenweg communities donated food, drinks and helped set-up and clean-up after the event. Special thanks go to Konrad and Vanessa who organized the event, Marianne Sihatong who helped with hospitality and the Scouts from BSA Troop 46 "Freedom Outpost" who were busy grilling and selling bratwurst.
We enjoyed a wonderful performance by the Southern Crescent Chorale from Atlanta, Georgia on June 20th 2010
Now in its eighth season, the Southern Crescent Chorale has established a reputation for excellence and achievement in the south metro Atlanta area arts community. An auditioned community chorus, the Chorale's mission is to enrich its communities and provide talented and interested singers an opportunity to perform a variety of challenging choral literature with high performance standards. Chorale members dedicate many hours to making music and have performed before thousands of people at venues throughout the Atlanta area and Europe.
The Chorale is a versatile group who performs a variety of choral literature each season. Repertoire includes master works, opera, spirituals, pop, and Broadway tunes. The Chorale is also pleased to present a concert each season to benefit children's organizations in our community.
The Chorale enjoyed its first tour abroad in 2007 and received rave reviews from the Italian audiences. They are happy to return to Europe to visit the lovely countries of Austria, Czech Republic, and Germany.
