Evening Songs – The choir brought an evening atmosphere to Waidhoven Parish Church

“Night will fall” – the mixed choir of the Waidhoven Singing and Music Association performed its concert with this slogan. In the baroque setting of the city’s parish church, one of the region’s best amateur choirs performed songs for dusk and night.

To get you in the mood for the evening, choir director Ilse Bernhard invited concertgoers to sing along to “Evening Silence Everywhere.” In the songs of early, high and late Romantic composers such as Johannes Brahms (“Nachtigall sag”) and Engelbert Humperdinck (“The Evening When I Go to Sleep”) and contemporary composers such as Lorenz Meyerhofer (“The Dream”) or Harry Woods (“When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain”) , The focus is often on the moon, the nightingale is admired, sleep is longed for, and dreams are imagined. A Native American song called “Evening Rise” was also performed, accompanied by muted drumming. In between the musical pieces, Elisabeth Adamowicz recited poems by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Theodor Sturm, Christian Morgenstern, and other poets.

Soprano Katharina Tschackert and pianist Magdalena Panajel provided the highlights of the concert as soloists and in a duet for voice and piano.
