Organ request concert – continuation

On Sunday, June 28, 2020, 5 p.m., the performance of Duke Ellington’s “Sacred Concerts” with the Oldenburg Chamber Choir, Vivid Voices and the big band “Fette Hupe” from Hannover should be performed. Due to the Corona crisis, the concert has unfortunately to be postponed to next year (June 19/20, 2021). Instead, there is now a digital organ request concert from St. Ansgar with KMD Johannes von Hoff – Part II! Under the following link:   https://youtu.be/gEQYmzv66f8 you can watch the concert on youtube – from 5 pm or any time later, then you can also select individual pieces! You can also listen to the last organ request concert performed on May 10th at any time (including individual works) at the following youtube link: https://youtu.be/8oQV0bhXu78.

The Organ Request Concerto Part II again offers a varied programme: works by J. S. Bach, his most famous organ work, the Tocata in D minor, this time in an interesting arrangement, which also pays tribute to this year’s birthday child L. v. Beethoven, will surprise you. You will listen to French, Norwegian and English music – the range goes from the 16th to the 21st century, furthermore a march and a short visit to a far away galaxy ….

 

The concert of the Oldenburger Kammerchor had to be cancelled this Sunday in St. Ansgar and other events have to fall victim to the Corona crisis! This is bad and threatens the existence of the dedicated musicians. You can help us this time too by making a donation to the “Förderkreiskonto der Kirchenmusik an St. Ansgar” so that we can at least pay the musicians a cancellation fee. The account number can be found below and in the information about this concert on YouTube or the church music page of St. Ansgar.

 

Fundraising campaign for musicians!

Several concerts had to be cancelled in St. Ansgar as well and still have to fall victim to the Corona crisis – among others the Sacred Concerts of Duke Ellington with the Oldenburger Kammerchor, Vivid Voices and the Bigband “Fette Hupe”! This is bad and threatens the existence of the dedicated musicians. You can help by donating to the “Förderkreiskonto der Kirchenmusik an St. Ansgar” so that we can at least pay the musicians a cancellation fee. The account number of the Support Association for Music at St. Ansgar at the Oldenburgische Landesbank (OLB): IBAN: DE88 2802 0050 1382 2341 02. Many thanks for your support! The concert with Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts will be made up for next year, probably on the weekend of June 19/20, 2021!

You are cordially invited – as a small compensation and at least virtually – to the Organ Wish Concert Sunday, May 10th, 2020, 5 pm in St. Ansgar, Oldenburg-Eversten : under the following link https://youtu.be/8oQV0bhXu78 you can watch the concert on youtube – from 5 pm or later, then you can also select individual pieces! Let the programme surprise you, it has become a wonderfully colourful menu: Works by Bach, Händel, Mendelssohn, a lot of French music is on the menu, a visit to the opera and ballet is on the agenda as well as a trip to a country wedding. Since not all wishes can be fulfilled due to the large quantity: Before the summer a new edition of “Orgelwunschkonzert II” is planned, also for this, further wishes can be submitted to cantor Johannes von Hoff (EMail: johannes.hoff@uni-oldenburg.de)!
