Gospel Choir meets every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. in the House on the Rock in the citadel for an hour of joyful singing. Everyone is welcome, young and old, experienced musicians and those who want to learn. Theo Halmen, music director at the Monastery (Lutheran) has a gift for turning even the least confident newcomer into a singer. Music is mostly in English and drawn from the American tradition of spirituals and gospel music, but the evolving repertoire also includes songs of praise to God in Latin, German, Romanian, Hungarian and even Swahili.
At any given time singers include Romanians, Germans, Americans, British, and Swiss – communication happens in a combination of languages! Twice a year the choir gives a concert, and several times a year it represents Veritas at community events such as the annual Advent Candle Walk or Ecumenical Carol Concert. Every two or three years the choir goes on tour to Germany, Austria or Switzerland.
If you live in the Sighisoara area and would like to join the choir, come to House on the Rock on Wednesday evening at 19:00 or call 0365-730-334 for more information. Gospel Choir is a great place to escape from your weekly routine, make new friends, and have your spirit lifted by music that is a powerful reminder of God’s goodness.
