1995                6. International Choir Days

 

The sixth International Choir Days were linked to the commemoration of the end of WWII, with the 50. anniversary on May 8, 1995. Under the motto: „Alle Menschen werden Brüder“ the Förderkreis organized on May 1, 1995 a concert of Mozart’s Requiem in the Einhardtsbasilika in Seligenstadt. On May 7, the same impressing piece was presented in the Auditorium Maximum of the Ruhr-University in Bochum, both concerts were conducted by Dr. Hans Jaskulsky. 

 

The highlight of the sixth choir days was a concert on May 8, 1995 in the great hall of the „Alte Oper“ in Frankfurt am Main. The Ra´anana Symphony Orchestra from Israel conducted by Dr. Hans Jaskulsky presented the „Overtüre zu Goethes Trauerspiel Egmont“, op. 84 by Ludwig van Beethoven, „Nänie“, op. 82 by Johannes Brahms and finally, with a mixed chorus from different countries, the 9.
