English Christmas Carol Services

Come sing English Christmas Carols with German and English speakers alike!  There are two opportunities that I know of this year...



***********************************************************

The first is at the Hugenotten Church in Erlangen, which we also featured last year.  The Hugenotten Church (Hugenottenkirche) is located on the Hugenottenplatz, just opposite the train station and bus depot, as well as McDonald's.  It is Erlangen's oldest building, and was the first Huguenot church outside of France - a beautiful setting to sing Christmas Carols!

"A Service of Lessons and Carols for Christmas"


December 11th (3rd Sunday in Advent) at 6pm.
The service will be conducted by Prof. Alasdair Heron and wife, Rec. Helen Heron.  The service will be accompanied by the choir "Sing A-Moll," flutists Zsuzsa Csögör, Susanne Scheer und Regina Zipf and Walter Holweger on the organ.

The second is at the E.T.A. Hoffmann-Gymnasium in Bamberg, is hosted by the German-English Club of Bamberg and is recommended by our local English speaking Girl Scout troops who will also be participating.
