Due to the rules for the protection of all our guests and the size of St. Laurentius Markranstädt, concerts with choral singing are currently not possible. Therefore, the commemoration concert for the Day of Prayer and Repentance with Mozart’s Requiem and the popular performance of the Christmas Oratorio have unfortunately had to be cancelled this year.

We very much regret these cancellations, as they are not only painful for our concert visitors, but also for the singers and musicians who work with a lot of leisure time commitment.

Unfortunately, the New Year’s Eve concert with OPUS 4 cannot take place either. The musicians will then be our guests at the New Year’s Eve Concert 2022.

So all that remains is for us to ask for your understanding and to hope for an improvement in the situation next year.
