Cleveland German Music Society
German Cultural Garden Concert July 8, 2012
The concert featured the sounds of traditional German music performed by musicians from three Northeast Ohio "Blaskapelle", or "brass bands", namely the Deutscher Musik Verein, the Youngstown Saxon Blaskapelle and the Donauschwäbische Blaskapelle. The Schuhplattler und Trachtenverein Bavaria Singers also performed several songs including the US and German National Anthems to begin the event.
The groups performed separately and together in the German Cultural Garden with Goethe and Schiller looking on.
The Conrad Mizer/Karl Wolfram Memorial Garden Concert is an annual event. Conrad Mizer, a German emigre, promoted summer band concerts in Cleveland public parks. Karl Wolfram was one of the founders of the Cleveland's Cultural Gardens and was the first president of the Cleveland Cultural Garden Federation.
Congratulations to Hans Kopp and his crew for their work on the concert and the German Cultural Garden.
