Special Highlight Concert: St. Bartholomäus Church, April 7 at 3 pm (Bach's wedding church)

The Falcon Choirs under the direction of Mrs. Tammi Alderman are going to perform on Wednesday, April 7, at 3:00 pm at the St. Bartholomäus church in Dornheim.
St. Bartholomäus was built in the middle of the 12th century. In this church, composer Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) married his first wife Maria Barbara Bach in 1707. After extensive restoration the church was opened again in 1999. To visitors this place seems very homey. With the deeply down-pulled red roof and the pictorial stairway this church has a special attraction. Moreover the beautiful bell tower and the dormer windows take away the severity that churches sometimes radiate. St. Bartholomäus today represents a gem because of its baroque interior.
