Karlsruher Konzertduo

Act Fast: Free German Christmas Concerts Hit the Midwest

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without the classic music that accompanies them, and we all know that experience isn’t complete until we are surrounded by others joining in on the spirit. Instead of putting another dent on that wallet this season by buying expensive concert tickets, the German Consulate General of the Midwest in Chicago has a special series of concerts that’ll cost you nothing.

Esteemed German concert duo the Karlsruher Konzertduo — cellist Reinhard Armleder and pianist Dagmar Hartmann — have taken the top prize at numerous international competitions and have played in an impressive 60 countries. Now they are coming to the Midwest to play a special set of classical German Christmas Chamber Music in a series of concerts in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana from December 9 to December 12.

No special invite is needed for this limited time event, but free tickets have a tendency to go quick (as they did in Chicago), so don’t procrastinate. RSVP’s are requested before December 5, and can be easily completed online. Check the schedule below for times, locations and ticket info.
