U.S.A. #23 - a tour in numbers

After mastering the first challenges our jubilee year has in store for us (incl. a very special CD recording – more on that later), we have now arrived in spring-mild San Diego. Its idyllic quarter of La Jolla had already welcomed us once before, exactly six years ago.

This is the westernmost starting point of our U.S. tour #23 whence we’ll move eastward via Arizona (amarcord’s federal state #33) and Tennessee towards New York. There we’ll finish the tour with our 150th U.S. concert, before exploring new shores in the old world.

1212 - 2012: 800 years of Thomana

20 years of amarcord pale beside the truly awe-inspiring anniversary of the Leipzig institution we all had been part of for nine years: St. Thomas Boys choir.

Fortunately, there will be plenty of opportunities this year to celebrate together. On March 21, the birthday of Bach, you can experience the Thomaner boys, the Prinzen and us (consecutively) in Leipzig’s Neues Rathaus.

Conjointly, St. Thomas Boys choir and amarcord will premiere a new piece by Georg Christoph Biller, the 16th successor of Johann Sebastian Bach – on the morning of Easter Sunday. This festive music specially written for the jubilee will be repeated twice, on April 21 and June 14.

On June 8, ten former St. Thomas choristers will take to the stage together for the first time: the Prinzen and amarcord. Alongside some active Thomaner boys, we will care for a serene and witty evening under a perfect (we hope) June sky.

Alone again, we will then sing a concert on Reformation Day as the opening for the festive week "800 years of St. Thomas church".

A couple of good reasons for your long-planned trip to Leipzig, we think ;-)

P.S. Two CDs are scheduled to complement the jubilee activities this year.

2 nominations for CARA

Our current Christmas album "Coming Home for Christmas" has been nominated twice for the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award 2012. We are glad to have twelve nominations on our record for this important web-based prize and ask for extensive keeping-your-fingers-crossed until April!

20 years of amarcord

On February 1, our jubilee concert series "20 years of amarcord“ commences in Leipzig. We’re looking forward to an evening filled with contemporary music (incl. world premieres by Gil Shohat and Steffen Schleiermacher) as well as to music-making with our colleagues in the Zemtsov Viola Quartet and the Leipzig String Quartet.

Tickets are on sale now for all of the remaining jubilee concerts. Those include a programme of Bach motets (with the Lautten Compagney Berlin: March 17, 2012 – St. Thomas church), a Renaissance feast with Los Otros (Hille Perl & Co: June 22, 2012 – St. Michael church), a festive concert in the Gewandhaus with a "You wish – we sing" part (October 5, 2012), and the traditional Christmas concert in St. Thomas church (December 18, 2012).

And for all who might not make it to Leipzig this year, we updated our concert calendar.
