Markranstädter Musiksommer

at church St. Laurentius

We welcome you to the website of

Musiksommer Markranstädt

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I kindly welcome you at our homepage.

Markranstaedt is a rather small city in the western part of Saxony and counts about 15 000 inhabitants. Since 2001, we are delighted to offer a monthly concert program in the time between April and October. These various and popular concerts are performed in our brightly renovated church St. Laurentius, which is located directly at our market place. We offer concerts for orchestra, the organ as well as chamber musical events. One can reach our church easily by using public transport. During every concert sufficient parking possibilities are provided at the market place as well.
After the musical season of summer has come to an end, we continue in November with our concert at the day of Prayer and Repentance. Biyearly at this day, Mozart´s famous “Requiem” will be performed by soloists, our orchestra and the church choir.
We kindly invite you to join the highlight of musical Christmas atmosphere. Every year our church choir performs the unique Christmas Oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach at the 3rd Advent.
Our concert at New Year´s Eve completes every year of musical preciousness. We would be joyful to see you visiting the church as well as our concerts.

Yours faithfully,

Frank Lehmann – church musician of St. Laurentius and conductor of the orchestra

The 2022 Markranstädter Musiksommer is now finished.

With the New Year’s Eve concert with Joachim Thoms from Berlin on our Kreutzbach organ, the 2022 concert series in the St. Laurentius Church came to an end.

After a long Corona break, we were able to hope for a little bit of normality in our event planning again and were very pleased with your loyalty and support, which you expressed with your concert visits and donations at the end of the concerts.
This helps us to continue to offer you such small breaks from the fast-paced and challenging everyday life.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again.

The events for 2023 are in preparation and will be published here soon.

We look forward to welcoming you back to St Laurentius Markranstädt soon and wish you a good time until then.

Yours faithfully,

Pastor Michael Zemmrich
and Frank Lehmann, Church musician at St. Laurentius

The organ

… at St. Laurentius Markranstädt

Our organ was built in 1886 and replaced the instrument built in 1617/18 by Heinrich Compenius the Younger.

The organ is in possession of two keyboards, a pedal, 24 stops and a swell and has been completely restored during the interior renovation of the church St. Laurentius in 2006/2007.
