Schola Gregoriana Europæa – session 2024
Ecumenical encounters in Berlin (Germany) from 2 to 8 October 2024
The Berliner Choralschola and its conductor Markus Krafczinski invite us on a journey of Gregorian chant in Berlin. They are offering a varied program with ecumenical encounters and with Gregorian pieces on the themes of the Virgin Mary and peace.
We will be singing vespers and masses in various high places in the city: the Carmel Maria Regina Martyrum, the evangelical church Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche and the Rosenkranz-Basilika. We will also visit Potsdam, its Sanssouci Park and the New Palace.
Accommodation will be in a hotel in a green district of Berlin, with a church and rehearsal hall nearby.
Three days of preparation are planned at the Postel abbey in Belgium from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 August 2024.
The two sessions will be directed by David Eben, director of the Schola Gregoriana Pragensis, professor at the Institute of Musicology at Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic) and at the University of Lucerne (Switzerland), and a regular participant at the Watou Festival.
