The sound of TU Chemnitz in Advent

The University Choir and the collegium musicum orchestra invite you to a joint performance on the second Sunday in Advent - advance purchase has already started - free admission to TUC students

Advent is approaching quickly. In the festive season, even at university, Christmas music is to be heard. Every year, the university choir holds Christmas concerts in the region, performing in churches to celebrate the Christmas season. These concerts are popular with students, staff and other music lovers. This year, however, there will be a very special concert. The university orchestra and choir are going to present a special performance with a joint programme.

Pieces by Mozart and Grieg as well as Christmas carols from different centuries, e.g. by Brahms and David Willocks will be performed. This will also include arrangements from Bach`s Christmas oratorio.

The concert will take place on the second Sunday of Advent 2013, at 5p.m. in St. Petri`s church (Theaterplatz). Tickets are 8 euro, reduced price 5 euro. TUC students have free admission (remember to bring your student card). The reduced price is also for Chemnitz Card holders, schoolchildren and other students as well as young people under the age of 18.

Advance purchase of tickets is available at St.-Petri`s parish (Schlossplatz 7) and in the bookshops Max Müller (Reitbahnstraße 19) and Universitas (Reichenhainer Str.55).
