Note from the conductor
We had an amazing Christmas season of performances. It started with a new venue for German Lessons and Carols at the historic New Jerusalem Lutheran Church in Lovettsville, VA on December 4th. On December 11th, once again, we brought German Christmas Music to the guests at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington DC. Closing out the Christmas season, we were able to return to our traditional German Christmas performance at the United Church / Vereinigte Kirche after a two-year pause due to the pandemic. It was amazing to be back after so long! The church was full of long-time supporters and new folks who said, “Now it feels like Christmas!”. On behalf of the singers, I thank all of you for coming out to support us. If you are interested in singing with us, please contact us by email at We will be taking a well-deserved break for the holidays and returning to rehearsals on Monday January 9th.
Spring Concert in Middleburg, VA, Saturday, May 20th, 4:00 pm at Emmanuel Episcopal Church.

We wish you a very Blessed Christmas and New Year!
