An English Advent Carol Serivce

An Advent Service of Seven Carols and Seven Lessons

Samstag, 2. December 2017 at 15:30 at Klosterkirche St. Ottilien

The "Munich English Choir" offers a lovely Carol Service at Kosterkirche Arch-Abbey of St. Ottilien, their specialty being the singing of the English "Advent Carol Service" on the evening before the 1st Advent. The Christmas story is told from the foretelling of the prophets in the Old Testament and then the Annunciation to Our Lady in the New Testament up to the birth of Our Lord. Following each Lesson a Carol is sung by the choir, based on the text of the Lesson or a different advent text. The congregation then responds with a congregational carol, which is a hymn based on an Advent or Christmas text.

The "Munich English Choir" are semi-professional singers who have a passion for english choral music.  The choir was founded in 2010 by the English Organist and Choirmaster Stephen Norton and now has over 36 members. The choir recently returned from a very successful tour to England singing in Gloucester, Birmingham and Coventry cathedrals.
St. Ottilien, is located about 40 km outside of Munich just west of the Ammersee near A96, also easily reachable by train or s-bahn.

STAGE KISS by American playwright Sarah Ruhl

Entity Theatre - English-language theater in Munich
Nov. 23 - 26 and Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 2017 at 7:30pm

Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. “Stage Kiss” is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.

“Sarah Ruhl delivers a brilliant comedy that aims for big laughs and hits its target. Funny: There’s nothing like it.”   – New York Post

Sarah Ruhl has received numerous award for her plays, which have been produced both on and off Broadway as well as regionally all over the country and internationally. To date, her plays have been translated into twelve languages. Originally from Chicago, Ms. Ruhl received her M.F.A. from Brown University. She won a MacArthur Fellowship in 2006, and most recently, the Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award. She was the recipient of the PEN Center Award for a mid-career playwright, the Whiting Writers award, the Feminist Press’s Forty under Forty award, and a Lilly Award. She is currently on the faculty at Yale School of Drama. Her book of essays on the theater and motherhood, “100 Essays I Don’t Have Time to Write,” was a Times Notable Book of the Year. She lives in Brooklyn with her family.

MING Member Haar Disciples

Haar Disciples

A final note on MING Member Haar Disciples:  Riding on the wings of their best-ever season, the Disciples reached the Semi-Finals of the 1st Bundgesliga Baseball 2017 playoffs before losing the final game of the best-of-5 game series to the Bonn Capitals 5-2.  Finishing with a 33-14 record, the Disciples had a spectacular season featuring often outstanding pitching, great defense, timely hitting, and a number of exciting, nail-biting games right up to the final out.   Their website is www.disciples.de.  Hats of to the guys and their great performance throughout the year.  And to sports announcer Tim Collins.
