On 09 January 2018, Ulrich Brassel held his first rehearsal as the new Choral Director of Cappella Aquensis. We performed our first concert “Idyll” together on 10 June in the Ballsaal des Alten Kurhauses Aachen. For our next concert on 18 November 2018, we are currently rehearsing a range of a-cappella pieces by Palestrina, Tallis, Bach, Mendelsshon and others.
Ulrich Brassel succeeds Thomas Beaujean, who was our Choral Director for 41 years. Thomas will keep conducting the choir in his Christmas concerts in the Krönungssaal.
