30 Years of Memories

April 23, 2022, 11:00 am

The emergence of an ensemble called amarcord from the breeding ground of St Thomas’s Boys Choir in 1992 went on to enrich Leipzig and the world. And we’re not just talking about the creation of this festival! After all, it resulted in a group of truly passionate singers who can now look back on 30 years of life as an ensemble and all that goes with it: concerts and tours in over 50 countries, friendships and collaborations with numerous artists, yet also two years of reduced activity during the pandemic, not to mention countless stories between Bach, Bolzplatz, Bronchipret and British “best buddies”. We want to use this opportunity – their own festival and their pearl jubilee – to take a look back at amarcord’s three decades of existence, together with the group. Come and join us for a fascinating conversation with all the members – either in person at Villa Thomana or by tuning in to the livestream – as they talk to presenter Annett Mautner from arts radio station MDR Kultur.
