Framed by the historical frescoes in Aachen City Hall's Coronation Hall, the choir gave a well-received concert at 5 pm on February 3. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, including those who helped with set-up, the beverage sellers, the doormen, the custodian, and of course the singers.

An Aachener Zeitung article has warm words for the soloists of the evening (in German).

Listen to a recording of "Jesu meine Freude" here.
