Chorherren Foundation Supports Church Music in Motets and Services at St. Thomas Church
Since the international Bachfest Leipzig cannot take place in its usual form again in 2021, the Executive Board of the Chorherren Foundation of St. Thomas’s has decided to support this year’s digital performances of the Messiah cycle with a sum of 10k Euros. The board has also decided to facilitate the church music in motets and services at St. Thomas Church until the end of the school year. This will be performed by self-employed musicians.
