On this evening in obertrubach, everything was just right

The new year’s concert, to which the local groups of barnfels, geschwand, obertrubach and wolfsberg of the french-swiss associations (FSV) invited to the parish church of st. Germany, ended with gleaming eyes and enthusiastic listeners. The group had invited the members of st. Laurentius to a joint event.

Everything just fit that evening. For almost two hours, the world-renowned "don cossack choir serge jaroff" was in love the deep russian soul in his singing traces. The top-class ensemble under the direction of vanya hlibka conveyed the whole magic and melancholy of russian music in the highest perfection with powerful and wonderfully timbred voices. His repertoire ranged from solemn songs of the russian orthodox church to well-known catchy folk tunes such as "kalinka" and classical compositions such as the unmistakable "ave maria". Classically powerful bass solos and admirable, fine solo voices filled the church nave. In the end, the singers were not stingy with the encores, after the standing ovation would not end.

Light show in the altar room

A successful idea was the light show in the sanctuary created by stefan pflaum from obertrubach: discreetly and with a great deal of sensitivity, it provided an unobtrusive but impressive backdrop to the recitals.

"The don-cossack-choir is at home on almost all world stages – only obertrubach was missing", said ulrich meierhofer humorously in his funeral speech and thus had the laughs on his side. Meierhofer had coordinated the activities in advance as chairman of the FSV local group geschwand. The coarseness of the house of god and its excellent acoustics did indeed provide the best possible setting for the event. "There is hardly a more worthy space for this than this house of god", meierhofer said. "I had a sleepless night the night before the event when I paid for 350 pre-sold tickets at the first box office rush", he added. The demand was greater than expected. In the end the concert was completely sold out.

The chairman was pleased to welcome guests from all regions of france, among them mayor markus gruner and the host, pastor werner wolf from obertrubach.

As a "supporting act the oberlandchor, consisting of singers from the wider region around obertrubach, had opened the concert with two songs under the direction of ludwig ebenhack. The old folk song "true friendship formed a beautiful bridge to the guests.

The new year concert is it the successful entrance into the jubilee year of the FSV local groups barnfels and geschwand. This year they are celebrating their 50th anniversary and are committed to the "cultivation of culture and song" on their flags written.
