Germany – Leipzig

Leipzig ,

  • Categories: germany

BachChurch WETTIN5J.S Bach and later Mendelssohn put Leipzig onto the musical map and the city is still an excellent destination for groups who want to learn something of the history of Western music as well as perform to an appreciative German audience.

The city of Leipzig is modern and ancient in parts and boasts several interesting music-related museums. The famous “Bach churches” are popular tourist attractions as well as beautiful venues for choirs. OneStage groups can often be found performing at the weekly open air musical soirée beside the Bach Monument next to the Thomaskirche.

Visits to Halle (birthplace of Handel), the historic town of Lutherstadt-Wittenberg and the castle and museum at Colditz are interesting and popular excursions.

Concerts can take place all over the region at all times of year and venues include churches, parks and gardens, castles, palaces, concert halls and spas.

Germany has an extremely rich musical heritage, which lives on today in the German's love of music. Even the smallest towns in Germany often boast their own "Musikverein", (musical organisation) and a concert hall or opera house in common-place even in smaller towns.
