Dear Members and Friends of the German-American Club of the Carolinas:
Please join us for a wonderful evening of music with Amarcord, one of the world's leading vocal ensembles. They will be performing in Spartanburg on Wednesday, November 4th, 7:00 p.m. at Converse College in the Daniel Recital Hall. The musical activities of this quintet center around Mediaeval and Renaissance compositions along with collaborations with contemporary composers such as Bernd Franke, Ivan Moody, Sidney M. Boquiren, Marcus Ludwig, Siegfried Thiele, and Dimitri Terzaki, all of whom have written pieces especially for Amarcord. Amarcord's repertoire includes various thematic programs ranging from madrigals and romantic compositions to a cappella arrangements of famous songs spanning all facets of vocal music.
Amarcord was founded in 1992 by members of the famous Thomanerchor Leipzig in Germany. All five members of Amarcord have had a very special musical education. The Thomanerchor Leipzig was founded in 1212 and is one of the oldest choirs in the world. The famous Johann Sebastian Bach was the choir director of the Thomanerchor from 1723 to 1750.
The concert is presented by Converse College and BMW. Please find details along with ticket purchasing information at the following link.
We hope to see you there for a special evening of music.
Dirk Schlingmann, President
German-American Club of the Carolinas
