Musical dream journey with the singers

The sangervereinigung bad rodach took its audience to the land of dreams last saturday at the very well attended musical evening in the festival hall in the haus des gastes. This time, songs from the two enchanting musicals "the wizard of oz" were performed and "mary poppins on the program.
The two soloists julia lucas (soprano) and martin siegel (tenor) were able to show all their skills and were accompanied by annerose roder on the piano in a sovereign and sensitive way. Julia lucas not only shone in her vocal passages, but as conductor she was also responsible for the overall direction of the evening.

The audience learned something

but it was not enough just to listen to the songs from the musicals, the audience also got to know the content of the two stories. The performer was rainer lucas, who with his sonorous bass voice was an asset to this performance. The listeners were able to follow the story and were drawn into the spell of the stories, which made the evening very special.
In the first part songs from the musical "the wizard of oz" were heard, whose content is based on the children's book written by the american author lyman frank baum in 1900 and which became world famous in 1939 as a musical film starring judy garland. The most famous song from this musical is certainly "somewhere over the rainbow". It was interpreted by julia lucas in a german version as well as in the english original version sovereign and impressively and formed a high point of the evening.
Martin siegel could then with the two songs "war' ich der konig des waldes" (I was the king of the forest) and the "song of the magician" please the audience. The choir was in no way inferior to these solo parts. With great passion they sang the songs "wir ziehen heut zum zaub'rer", "jitterbug" and "voices of hope and impressed especially by a very good articulation.
The second part of the evening was dedicated to the musical "mary poppins" dedicated. The film of the same name, starring julie andrews as mary and dick van dyke as bert, won five oscars in 1965.
Here, too, the choir enthused with popular songs such as "supercalifragilistic", "a spoonful of sugar" and "chim chiminee and in unison with julia lucas during the song "the birdwoman. At the duet "such a beautiful day" julia lucas and martin siegel were then able to put all their skills on the line once again before the chorus started with "anything we want can happen" ended the evening. For this bravourose performance there was rough, enthusiastic applause, so that the actors couldn't avoid an encore. The chairman of the singing association, werner zoufal, thanked the participants and presented them with small gifts.

Israel declares grass an undesirable person

Criticism of the 84-year-old for his poem also continues in germany. In an article for the newspaper "bild am sonntag," auben minister guido westerwelle wrote: "to put israel and iran on the same moral level is not witty, but absurd."

Grass had denounced in his poem "what must be said", published on wednesday, that iran was threatened by a pre-emptive nuclear strike by israel that could wipe out the iranian people. He accused israel of endangering world peace as a nuclear power. The poem had earned him accusations of anti-semitism at home and abroad. Grass had defended himself and accused his critics of hatred and a campaign against him.

Kulmbach winter service ready for action in twenty minutes

"It will take a little longer." the head of the untersteinach road maintenance department did not want to give a more concrete forecast for the first snowfall. With temperatures reaching the 20-degree mark at the end of october, werner meingast's restraint is also understandable. Apart from that: the salt depots have been filled for a long time, the plows are overhauled and ready for use, the winter road clearance service could start within twenty minutes.

This is exactly how long it normally takes for a normal truck to become a winter service vehicle. The assembly of room signs, road salt containers and computer technology for the operators has long since become second nature to the men of the untersteinach road maintenance department. Instead, they are currently still on the road with mowers and other implements to keep the roads and the adjacent banks in order.

New construction sites in kleinwenkheim starting in 2020

Despite some vacancies in the town center, the small town district can hope for growth in the medium term: at the town hall meeting in the kleinwenkheim sports center, mayor helmut blank (CSU) explained the new situation in front of a record-breaking crowd (around 20 percent of the population of the community of 320 souls had come).

In view of the rough demand in all parts of the city, the need for action was also seen in kleinwenkheim and the planning of a new building area was started. "But the previous plans had not been realizable", said blank. The development costs had been too high for the residents because of the difficult land situation. Now an alternative has opened up. On the road to fridritt, the municipality owns a plot of land that can be divided into six building plots. In addition, a neighbor has signaled a willingness to sell, which will significantly improve the layout of the individual pitches. There is already a serious buyer interested, and blank assumes that the rough demand – as in the other city districts – will start when the development becomes concrete.

20-year-old tried to get a loan from the bank

His dream of self-employment as a business consultant turned a 20-year-old employee from bamberg into a fraudster. In order to obtain a loan of 27,500 euros from a bank, he scanned his father’s salary statement into his computer. With the help of an image editing program, he replaced his father’s name with his own name and presented the forged document to the bank. But the bank employee in charge quickly saw through the swindle and filed a complaint for attempted fraud.

Instead of sitting in the boss’s chair in his own office, the 20-year-old had to sit in the dock at the district court in habfurt on monday, where the juvenile court sentenced him to a community service fine of 2,000 euros. The defendant, who has no previous convictions, admitted the accusation through his lawyer thomas monius.

Today, children, there will be something

Last year, santa claus was not allowed to go from house to house because of the corona contact restrictions. This year, heinrich witzgall is allowed to visit the children again. For 45 years, he has had a passion for corpsing santa claus, just as he has for beekeeping. He started as a 13-year-old when there was no one left in the town of stadtsteinach to play this role. "I was already rougher than the children I was supposed to visit, and so it worked out to give the four- to ten-year-olds a good telling off." of course, the children mostly knew that santa claus was not real, witzgall says. "Nevertheless it is fantastic – for both sides. It suddenly creates a completely different atmosphere, he says.

"It occasionally happens that a child clearly says that santa claus does not exist. Then he explains to him that santa claus comes on the 6th of december. December has so much to do that he can’t do it all himself. Therefore, he sends helpers to dress up like him and take work off his hands. The child is satisfied with this explanation."

She is all ears

Heidrun fischer hort more than others. Not only because she has been training listening for years, but because she has a third ear, an "electronic ear". It consists of cables, a screen, a music system and a kind of mixing console.

Here heidrun fischer produces music and voice programs; experiments with frequencies, mixes them in or filters them out – depending on what is healing for her clients.
"Tomatis" the method is called; named after the french doctor alfred tomatis. He died in 2001 – and it is only today that the technical possibilities exist to realize what he had researched in the 1950s, heidrun fischer tells us. "Many thought he was a crackpot."
But now that researchers have discovered the plasticity of the brain, we can understand what the french doctor already knew 60 years ago: the pathways and hormone patterns in the brain can be altered by a different acoustic stimulus.
