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.
