"The Last Judgement" - Concert by the Stadtmusikkapelle Amras

Special music, in a special place, at a special time of year. This year we would like to invite you to a hopefully special concert evening in the church "Maria am Gestade" in Sieglanger.
Even the earliest forms of music were often associated with spiritual or religious rituals. Music composed for liturgical purposes also plays an important role in Western culture. And even if fewer and fewer people live out their faith, they still usually enter religious places reverently and respectfully. Reasons enough for us to devote ourselves to the appealing subject of "music in the church" and to offer you, our valued audience, an emotional experience.
Some of the works we would like to play for you have stood the test of time for centuries - Georg Friedrich Handel's "Overture in D minor" was composed in 1717 - while others are only a few years old, such as the piece "Compostela" by French composer Thierry Deleruyelle, which describes a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Another exciting work provides the name for our concert program: "The Last Judgement". At first glance, it resembles a typical Italian overture, but was originally composed in 1879 for the then reformed Italian military bands. You can also experience Daria Seebacher as the musical director of our Kids Club performance on the one hand and as a vocal soloist with "Panis Angelicus" on the other.
