Concert program for the 414th birthday of the theologian and hymn poet Paul Gerhardt, who was pastor at the Nikolaikirche in Berlin from 1657 to 1667.

After the birthday celebration for Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676) had to be cancelled last year due to Corona, this year we welcome very special guests to a festive concert in the Nikolaikirche:

From Amsterdam, the Catholic theologian and popular songwriter Huub Oosterhuis, who has been honored many times for his ecumenical work, as well as the choir of his Lehrhaus under the direction of Kees Kok.
The choir and orchestra conductor Carsten Albrecht with the house choir of the Nikolaikirche in Berlin, Capella Vocale Berlin.
And finally the jazz trio phon-O-rama with an improvisation on the melody of Gerhardt's "Oh Haupt voll Blut und Wunden".
With these guests, in honour of Paul Gerhardt, we are for the first time making the connection to the current church song and to ecumenism. For the connection of biblical-theological roots, poetic language and historical to contemporary music merges into an artistic experience for people with the most diverse attitudes to life and faith.

Welcome: Albrecht Henkys, Curator Museum Nikolaikirche
Introduction: Carsten Albrecht
Music from Berlin: Cappella Vocale Berlin (Conductor: Carsten Albrecht) | phon-O-rama

A cooperation with the Protestant Parish St. Petri - St. Marien and the Paul-Gerhardt-Society e. V.
