Witchert Chorale in Berlin

Witchert in Berlin

The Witchert Chorale has just returned from a wonderful trip to Berlin, returning the visit paid to Haddenham last May Day weekend by the Golgotha Kantorei, the choir from central (old East) Berlin. Never can a choir have been so warmly and heartily welcomed.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were looked after, fed and watered with enormous warmth and generosity.

The centrepiece to the weekend was a concert by both choirs in the Golgotha Church, close to the centre of Berlin, to the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and all the other historic sights. That was followed by a splendid meal out in a local restaurant, where not only did we sing late into the night, but members of the Haddenham Hoofers also gave a dazzling display of their dancing and a lone Morris Man demonstrated his skills — all to the slight bemusement of other diners, who were, nonetheless, glad to have so much entertainment and not to have to pay for it!

It was a wonderful trip — and the Witchert Chorale is now starting to plan the next visit by the Berliners to our village. More to follow on that score in due course...

Witchert Autumn Concert

A date for your diary — Saturday 16th November, when the Witchert Chorale will sing Bach's Magnificat and other varied music. The event will be supported by and run in co-operation with the Haddenham Village Society. We're thinking of a title for it and will let you know when we have it! But rest assured — it will be a rather magnificent Magnificat — accompanied by the Trinity Camerata including three trumpets and much else. An evening not to be missed!
