Traditional Christmas songs from various countries, sung with great devotion by an international choir: J-Cappella, the choir of Jacobs University, invites you to take an atmospheric, Christmas world tour. The concerts will be held on December 10th and 11th, 2016 in the Interfaith House on the campus in northern Bremen. Admission is free. There are no reservations; come early to get a good seat.
The international composition of the ensemble is unique; and this variety is also reflected in the repertoire. “The concert-goers will hear Christmas songs in a wide variety of languages and music styles, from jazz to classic, from solos to full ensemble,” says the Director, Rucsandra Popescu. The result is a fascinating and touching Christmas world tour, presented with great emotion.
Since 2008, the composer and pianist Rucsandra Popescu has led the choir, which recently received the rating of “very good” at the 4th Choir Competition of the Choir Association Bremen / Lower Saxony in April of 2016. It currently consists of 40 singers, all students or employees at Jacobs University. “Our goal is to present authentic performances and thus move the hearts of the audience, rather than striving for technical perfection,” says Rucsandra Popescu, who loves the challenges and once again this year has put together an extensive repertoire with a lot of new faces.
