The Edelweiss Chorus consists –at present time- of 25 members. A mixed chorus, singing 4 part harmony under the direction of Anne Keller. These singers are a very dedicated group , who share a profound love for music, especially the German tradition of beautiful folk songs, ballads, chorales and hymns. They meet every Monday evening for rehearsal, from September to May.
Anne is very serious-minded and particular in purpose, to lead her group to events that will be admired by the public. They present several concerts and programs during the year, mainly: Spring concert in March, Christmas concert in December. They also participate in the annual Heritage Day in St, Petersburg, in the German American Day at the Club in October, the church service at the Oktoberfest at the club, the Memorial Service in November for our departed members, and Christmas Eve church service at Christ Lutheran Church. The highlight of the chorus was a few years ago, the opportunity to sing with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Erich Kunzel.
We are always open for new singers, if they decide to join our group.
