The christuskirche was filled to capacity and, judging by the final applause, everyone had a very enjoyable and entertaining afternoon. Trombone choir, church choir and a new manner ensemble offered a lively musical afternoon for the benefit of the rumanian aid organization. The concert started with classical trombone pieces by M. Schutz, J.S. Bach and A. Kalmann, played by the trombone choir under the direction of gabriel konjaev. The church choir then spanned a wide musical arc from the classic jubilant song "gloria" to the "gloria" over african rhythms with "yezu azali awa" up to the gospel" just a closer walk"".
The choir was directed by irina konjaev and accompanied on the piano by gabriel konjaev. During the african song and the gospel, regina toifel emphasized the driving rhythms of the music with her cajon (drum).

The singing of the four gentlemen with pastor hans-friedrich schafer and thomas fortsch as tenors and carsten constien as well as oliver kohrmann in the bass was impressive. Classic american evergreens – real earworms – were performed in a refreshingly modern interpretation.
