Singkreis explores the saarland-lorraine-luxembourg triangle

After exploring the north with the island of rugen on last year’s choir trip, the hebdorfer singkreis set its sights on the western triangle of saarland-lorraine-luxembourg on this year’s trip.

Trip organizer and chairwoman emilie meier had put together an extensive program for the nearly 85 participants, including 52 choristers. The focus was – as always – on a self-imposed choral-musical assignment. Thus the singkreis framed a sunday service in the magnificent baroque ludwigskirche saarbrucken under the direction of julian bobe. Among other things, a "jubilate" was heard by jean baptist lully, the court composer of the french sun king ludwig XIV., which, by the way, had significantly shaped the image of the so-called secret capital of the saarland, saarlouis, where the choir was accommodated for four days.

Two spiritual arrangements by the former choir director manfred meier were also performed for the first time. The service finally ended with an effective "hallelujah" accompanied by the organ-chorus from trade oratorio "messiah, which will be performed by the singkreis in hebdorf and erlangen this december.

Among the touristic highlights of the trip were a trip to the saar loop near mettlach and to the villeroy und boch ceramics museum, a guided tour of the european metropolis of luxembourg, and a day trip to metz, the capital of lorraine, with its urban architectural treasures, including the mighty gothic cathedral with its famous marc chagall windows and its avant-garde "centre pompidou" for modern art.
