Even stars have guardian angels

even stars have guardian angels

Stars are also no longer what they used to be. Maybe he just wasn’t paying attention for a moment or maybe he dozed off. Just before christmas, the rough star in the sky could not hold on any longer and fell down to earth. And yet, as always, he had wanted to shine over bethlehem when christ was born. Rough star, what now? Good advice is expensive, plotzlich rhymes with "bethlehem also a "problem. But the remedy is coming, and on wings. Apparently stars also have their guardian angels. They take the star and carry it on wings to its rightful place in the sky, so that it can shine again at the right time. Just in time. But you can rely on the guardian angels.

Of course, this is a harmless story – because you should not rely only on your guardian angels. But in 2007, peter schindler, pianist, organist, composer and music producer, turned it into a small musical play for children’s choirs, which in just a quarter of an hour offers the possibility of spreading a pre-christmas atmosphere without stables and oxen and donkeys, i.E. Beyond the usual nativity plays. The six songs are set in such a way that they do not overtax the children vocally and can be sung in one or more voices. The melodies are easy to remember – and one of them is already familiar: "vom himmel hoch da komm ich her" sing the angels as they transport the star to its place. You could actually rephrase the song: "up in the sky, I’ve got to go up there". At the end, everything is back in its place and in order. And this is also shown by the music: "finally the star is back, nothing is missing for christmas happiness" is a little good mood waltz.

"Rough star, what now?" Opened the afternoon concert in the spa theater, which brigitte and burkhard ascherl under the motto "advent and contemplative for large and small" to which they had brought three of their choirs: the children’s choir and the youth choir as well as the julifa choir. The kantorei is currently well occupied with the preparation for bach’s christmas oratorio on 16 december. December. And, of course, the children were first: one group played the dancing angels who save the star, the other sang in the background the songs that comment on the event. Brigitte ascherl had succeeded in getting the two groups to concentrate, because first performances in front of an audience – and then on a real theater stage – actually have an enormous distraction potential.

What are they looking forward to in 2019? And what they prefer to postpone until 2020? In the next part: district administrator thomas bold (CSU).

1. What was your high point in 2018?

Thomas bold: there are many outstanding projects, z. B. The construction work on the BBZ in munnerstadt, the bavarian music academy, the rhon mountain house or the decision to build the rhon nature experience center at the klaushof wildlife park with an office in the district. The most important thing in all of this is the excellent cooperation between the district council and the administration for the benefit of the citizens. That makes me proud!

Message for small and coarse

Message for small and coarse

"Tobias elsaber is not just an author, but a real multi-talent", explains christiane weib, head of the bamberg public library, to the young listeners. Around 25 elementary school students came to the parish hall of maria hilf on tuesday afternoon to hear tobias elsaber read from his book "linus lindbergh und die invasion der roboter" (linus lindbergh and the robot invasion) to be read aloud. The 45-year-old author has already been a boy band member, a freelance journalist for radio and even a software programmer, among other things.

Currently elsaber is on the road as an author, singer and songwriter. He writes novels for children and teenagers, even though he grew up without any children’s books and had to sit out the fourth grade because he had failed a german class. But in the meantime he finds writing and above all imagination "totally cool, because it offers more possibilities than reality. "Ever since i was a child, it has been my dream to live in the middle of stuttgart airport," the children sing loudly, he notes. For this reason, the main character of his book was also placed in the middle of an airport.

Literature and music

The children listen attentively to the adventurous tale of a young inventor’s son named linus lindbergh and his best friend majus 12, a fashion-loving robot. The author from stuttgart then picks up the ukulele to sing a song he wrote for his book series about linus lindbergh. "Because crazy is normal and normal is crazy", his voice resounds. "Turn the world upside down, follow the lindbergh way", the children sing along loudly.
Music is present in all his books, and he is always thrilled by the power of a song sung together, elsaber explains. The mixture of reading aloud and singing also goes down well with the children. "I think it was very nice", reports seven-year-old anna. "I heard about the books for the first time today and wanted to read on straight away at home", says eight-year-old wunderburg schoolboy mihnea.

Mozart can also be cool!

Mozart can also be cool!

Sometimes days start terribly: you are sitting tired in the school bus and next to you a classmate is playing terrible music loudly. On days like this, you want to go home to bed right away! The situation is quite different, as was reported a few weeks ago by the HDE. Then one got perhaps even good mood – because favorite music makes spab.

Favorite music depends on parents and friends
but what is actually favorite music? And where does it come from? These are the questions that 60 young students explored on friday with professor stefan hormann and his colleague roland kocina. The two are music padagogues. That is, they research all things related to music. And they explore how good music teaching works.

Together with the children's university students, they have found out quite exciting things about favorite music: for example, that it depends on what songs parents and friends like to listen to. If your parents like to listen to classical music, beethoven or mozart, you probably like beethoven and mozart as well.

Since then, the rule has been that the spectacle is always held in alternation with the botenlauben festival, i.E. On odd-numbered years, always on the weekend after the start of school. After 2017, the fifth edition is now starting and this small jubilee is to be celebrated in a special way.
