ESME at the “Expat in the City” Fair
Following the success of last year’s “Expat in the City”, our musicians once again signed up to help set up and run the ESME booth at this year’s event, which was held in the BMW World at Olympiazentrum, on Sunday 6 March. Many members of the public expressed an interest in our organisation and signed up to either join an ensemble or attend one of our concerts. A small section of the choir gave the audience a taster of the upcoming Spring Concert with a section of the song “Nelly Bly” – which was very well received!
ESME Spring Weekend Away
On Friday 11 March, around 70 ESME members gathered at the Alexander von Humboldt Institut in Bad Schüssenried for another weekend of music-making. All three ensembles were well represented and enjoyed the many hours of rehearsal, thanks to the continued dedication and enthusiasm of their directors. By Saturday night each ensemble was ready to perform something from this season’s repertoire to the rest of the group. The Big Band’s pieces were particularly spectacular!
Thankfully there was also time for the usual banter and late-night fun, which always make these events so memorable. All in all an excellent weekend, and members can look forward to the next one in early October!
An additional date for your Diary: Saturday 23 April at 19:00
The ESME Choir presents a wide selection of tunes, ranging from gospel and folk to classical and pop, plus a variety of performances from smaller instrumental and vocal groups.
It promises to be an evening of great musical entertainment. Hope to see you there!
