DEC2
Weihnachtsmarkt Bern
Dec 2 - Dec 24 · Bern
Azra, Gabriela and 2 friends interested

Im Dezember erstrahlt Bern im goldenen Licht. Wenns überall nach Lebkuchen, Caramel und Glühwein duftet und in allen Ecken winterliche Lichterketten funkeln, ist Weihnachtsmarkt-Zeit. Geschenke shoppen und Glühwein trinken wird in den verträumten, mittelalterlichen Gassen der Weltkulturerbe-Stadt zum wunderbaren Erlebnis. Der Weihnachtsmarkt auf dem Münster- und Waisenhausplatz gehört zu den grössten und schönsten der Schweiz, und ist nomiert für die Auszeichnung als «Best European Christmas Market 2018».

Der Weihnachtsmarkt auf dem Münsterplatz ist gemütlich, charmant und in eine wunderschöne Kulisse eingebettet. Zu Füssen des Berner Münsters, der Kirche mit dem höchsten Kirchturm der Schweiz, bieten regionale Handwerkskünstler ihre Unikate an. Hier entdeckt ihr mit viel Liebe Selbstgemachtes, Kunstvolles, Kulinarisches und vieles mehr. Zudem munkelt man, der weisse Glühwein im «Märitbeizli» sei der beste der Stadt!

Vom Münsterplatz spaziert ihr in wenigen Minuten zum zweiten Standort. In über 50 weihnachtlich geschmückten Holzhäuschen finden Besucher auf dem Waisenhausplatz ein breites Angebot an Souvenirs, typisch weihnächtlichen Artikeln und Gegenständen für den täglichen Gebrauch. Tipp: Das Do-it-yourself-Fondue im «Märitbeizli» Platzhirsch ist ein unvergessliches Erlebnis!

2. - 23. Dezember 2017

Amadeus Choir Berne marks the
beginning of Advent with a musical
treat
Over the last years, the Bernese Amadeus Choir has repeatedly performed masterpieces of choral music in English such as Handel's Messiah or Purcell's King Arthur. In 2017 this exploration of the English repertoire continues with a seasonal concert featuring Benjamin Britten's Saint Nicolas cantata and The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Britten's cantata was first performed in 1948 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Lancing College in Sussex. The premiere brought together lay musicians and choirs from several neighbouring public schools. The title part
was interpreted by Peter Pears, Britten's lifelong personal and professional partner, who was himself an alumnus of Lancing.

The Lark Ascending was inspired by a poem of the same name by George Meredith. Vaughan Williams had begun his composition before the Great War, its premiere, however, was not to take place until 1920. The piece enjoyed immediate popularity in Britain and still ranks highly among the nation's classical favourites.

For this project the Amadeus Choir cooperates with the vocal ensemble Suppléments musicaux and the orchestra Arte Frizzante, thus continuing its tradition to enable young musicians. The solo parts will be interpreted by violinist Maria Strelbitska and the English tenor Jonathan Stoughton. Bohdan Shved, artistic director of the Amadeus Choir since 2012, will be conducting.

The concert will be given twice: Friday 1 December and Saturday 2 December 2017 at 7.30 p.m. (doors and box office open at 7 p.m.) at the Petruskirche (Brunnadernstrasse 40, 3006 Berne).
