Benefit Concert for the 2nd German-American Friendship Day
| Volkshaus (Carl-Zeiss-Platz 15, 07743 Jena)
Free tickets available from 27.09. at the tourist information office
On the occasion of the 2nd German-American Friendship Day, the U.S. Consulate General Leipzig, the city of Jena and JENOPTIK AG invite you to a concert in the Volkshaus on October 6, 8 p.m. (admission from 7 p.m.).
The Jena Psycho-Choir and the American soul singer Kirk Smith with band will perform the concert together.
The Psycho-Chor of the FSU Jena are about 60 young and enthusiastic singers* who founded themselves as an a cappella ensemble at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and have since dedicated themselves to vocal pop. "Psycho-Chor" was actually just a whimsical working title of the early days after its founding at the Institute of Psychology at FSU Jena. But it quickly developed into a fixed cultural brand with recognition value. In the years that followed, the choir took off - and not only throughout Germany. Trips abroad took it to Amiens and even New York. At the invitation of the German Consul General, they even sang at the headquarters of the United Nations during the General Assembly in front of UN delegates - a goosebump moment.
Kirk Smith, who lives in Berlin by choice, is a gifted and authentic singer from the USA. From an early age he found his fulfillment in music and already sang in the gospel choir in his native Chicago.
He tours all over Europe with his band and inspires with authentic jazz, soul, pop, swing and gospel sounds. In Germany, he convinced, among others, on The Voice of Germany 2014 and has already performed with hip-hop greats such as Die Fantastischen Vier.
The concert takes place as a benefit concert for the Ukraine aid of the civic foundation Jena-Saale-Holzland.
The free tickets can be picked up from Tuesday, 27.09. to 05.10. at the Jena Tourist Information at Markt 16. Please note that admission is only possible with a ticket. A remaining contingent of tickets will be available at the box office.
