Monthly Program Meeting

We have no formal meeting in the month of December due to our Holiday party- We'll meet again in January!

If you have recently joined our group, this is a nice event and a great way to meet other members of the group in the cheery holiday season. We look forward to enjoying each member's shared dish, playing games, donating gifts for the young ladies of IMMA (a ‘safe house’ for young women in Munich we support) and dancing the night away. 
This is a members only event. For more information, please see the member information news or your Evite.

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.

Egalia’s Daughters, The History of Bees, The Founding Gardeners . .

Book Club - Fall 2017

October - Egalia's Daughters

Egalia's Daughters: A Satire of the Sexes by Gerd Brantenberg.

An interesting thought-provoking satire on gender roles and in particular the fortunes of one "masculinist" boy who tries to fight against the oppression of his gender. It's an upside-down society, in which men are repressed and taken advantage of, and women have all the power.

November - The History of Bees

The History of Bees, A Novel by Maja LundeThe History of Bees book cover

In the spirit of Station Eleven and Never Let Me Go, this dazzling and ambitious literary debut follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, weaving a spellbinding story of their relationship to the bees—and to their children and one another—against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.   England, 1852. William is a biologist and seed merchant, who sets out to build a new type of beehive—one that will give both him and his children honor and fame.   United States, 2007. George is a beekeeper fighting an uphill battle against modern farming, but hopes that his son can be their salvation…

 

The Founding Gardeners

The Founding Gardeners: How the Revolutionary Generation created an American Eden by Andrea Wulf.

The follow up to the award-winning and critically acclaimed history of British gardening, this is the story of how George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison's passion for nature, plants, agriculture and gardens shaped the birth of America. The Founding Gardeners offers a fascinating look at the revolutionary generation from the unique and intimate perspective of their lives as gardeners, plantsmen and farmers.
