Concert: "Tales of Christmas" Sunday 9.Dec.2018 @16:00 English-Speaking Music Ensembles e.V. at the Gasteig

6 posts in this topic

Rehearsals begin this week -- not too late to join for this season! 


Mark your calendars, folks, ESME will perform again Dec. 9!  More details will follow!

 

Formerly known as the TT Orchestra and Singers, the English-Speaking Music Ensembles formed an Orchestra of 5 people at the end of 2008 and now have an orchestra of 45 people, a choir of 60 and a Big Band -- and we became an e.V. in 2011.

 

We usually play about 2 - 3 concerts a year. In 2010 we had our debut at the Gasteig. Yes, we're developing rapidly. But we're about *everyone* enjoying playing, no matter their standard or the last time they even looked at an instrument. We're also about having fun and enjoying a good social life! Rehearsals are all in English, and the Singers don't even need to know how to read music -- though you should be able to carry a tune...

 

We welcome new members at almost any time during the season.  http://www.esme-ev.de/join-us/ has current information on our open spots, and rehearsal times are at the bottom of that page. 

 

Trombones for the Big Band? Double bass for the Orchestra? Tenors, basses for the Singers? Always welcome!

Take time out from the pre-Christmas bustle to unwind and groove with Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Vince Guaraldi, and Dvorak performed by the English-Speaking Music Ensembles: Orchestra, Singers, and Resident Alien Big Band. 

We’ll have at least one waltzing flower, one Tannenbaum, and English Christmas carols. California Dreamin’ in the Bleak Midwinter leaves us with the Sounds of Silence -- while Nabucco’s slaves dream of liberty. Maybe the merry gentlemen will get a chance to rest before Christmas time is here! A new world awaits us after we’ve heard the herald angels sing...

We reckon we'll finish in something like two hours.  The Afterparty reservation only starts at 18:30 though, because it takes us a while to pack up.

All those tickets sold out, folks.  Our first time selling out the Gasteig WITH balcony!  We had a great time and hope you did too -- all three ensembles (Orchestra, Big Band, and Singers) will start up rehearsals for our June 29 2019 concert in late January / early February next year.  Join us!
