Mayor's Reception in Chemnitz - A big THANK YOU to SCS and the Touring Choir

The choir and shadow group enjoyed the Mayor's reception and official welcome ceremony to Akron's German sister city on Friday evening in the Chemnitz Town Hall. Mayor Nonnen thanked the Summit Choral Society for bringing their fine choir to Chemnitz and called the upcoming concert at Markuskirche "a wonderful gift". He thanked Arlene Jacobs and Dr. Frank Jacobs for including Chemnitz into the Touring Choirs Central European Performance Tour 2007. Akron's Deputy Mayor Dave Lieberth also thanked SCS and expressed how proud he was to see their fine choir visiting Chemnitz. The two cities celebrate the 10th anniversary of their friendship in 2007. This is the first time a choir from Akron performs in Chemnitz and also the largest self-fincanced group to ever come visit. The singers performed three songs and received much applause.

Thereafter, all 107 travelers dined together in the picturesque Ratskeller Restaurant. The Sauerbrauten with red cabbage and potato dumplings was an instant hit.
