Sunday, October 8, 2:00-3:30 p.m.
Visit the Conservatory gardens and celebrate our German twin city – Gera – with a lively afternoon concert of German song presented by Fort Wayne’s world-traveled twin chorale of Männerchor and Damenchor (the men’s and ladies’ choirs). This joint club preserves the German heritage that runs in the veins of a large percent of Fort Wayne’s population. The lyrics are German, but you’ll get the gist as choral director Tom Remenschneider introduces each piece. In addition, local author and German native Christel Gehlert will relate the story of how our Sister City relationship emerged after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, and how that friendship was cemented by the sharing of song. The first 100 will receive a free vinyl decal to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our twinning with Gera, Germany. The concert is included with regular Conservatory admission.
