at church St. Laurentius
We welcome you to the website of
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.
Frank Lehmann – church musician of St. Laurentius and conductor of the orchestra
The 2022 Markranstädter Musiksommer
So far we have been able to hold this year’s music summer as planned and now hope to continue this for the events up to the New Year’s Eve concert.
After the autumn concert on 10 September with Alexander May (clarinet) and Frank Lehmann on the Kreutzbach organ, we will conclude the music summer on 1 October with Mozart’s Requiem in D minor.
For the first time in over two years, a choir will be heard in our events.
On 5 November, the Leipzig rock band Karussell will be our guests at St Laurentius,
and in the commemorative concert on the Day of Prayer and Repentance you can experience another organ-plus-combination, with Lena Ruddies (organ) and Frank Liebscher (saxophone).
Tickets for the final concert on 1 October are again available at all our advance booking offices and online.
We look forward to seeing you
Pastor Michael Zemmrich

… 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.
