German Folk SINGING

Liederkranz is back! A new opportunity to practice German is a German Folk Sing-A-Long or Liederkranz . Not a German language class. It’s just for fun. With an emphasis of singing songs “auf deutsch”, the goal is to honor the German heritage that is remembered in old German folk songs, with perhaps a passing nod to more current German melodies.   Free and open to the public.  Just for fun – come and sing. Those learning German might find it helpful for practicing German pronunciation and learning about German culture. On the third Thursday evening of the month. See this month’s schedule here.

A German Detective series on PBS

WYES Passport Members can watch the two season series “Luna and Sophie“. in German with English subtitles.  Still available on PBS streaming.  Luna Kunathr and Sophie Pohlmann are best friends and polar opposites.  They are also partners in solving crimes. Set in Potsdam, near Berlin.  German with English subtitles.
