Christmas and New Year Fusion absurdity

I can’t remember when it really started, but the Christmas and New Years Fusion in Istanbul got a rather accepted reality. We went to Nışantaşı and Teşvikiye, dropped by at a present fair at the military museum in Harbiye. All this Kitsch got adopted. Father Christmas is Noel Baba…..

The Thomaner Choir sings Christmas Songs

The Thomas-School was founded 1212 in Leipzig under the reign of King Otto IV. The Choir of young boys was part of the monastry St. Thomas.

The choir got worldfamous through the hundreds of years of its existence. Famous composers like Johann Sebastian Bach were among the musicians guiding and training the singers.

The Thomaner are around 100 boys in the age between 9 and 18. They are visiting the Thomas-School, a high school with a special education for musicians.
