Leaf sweeping on 20 November
As every year in November, many people from Schlenzer followed the call to sweep up the leaves and overhanging branches in the parks and along the streets of the village and to transport them away with their vehicles. The joint work was fun for all and could be concluded contentedly with sausage and beer.
Fourth Schlenzer Courtyard Concert on 3 October
Our Schlenzer resident conductor and pianist James Wood organised his fourth courtyard concert together with his neighbours Ralph Mayer and Sabine Puhlmann. Many Schlenzer residents, as well as guests from other parts of Brandenburg and Berlin, came to experience this carefully crafted concert.
The sopranos Sabine Puhlmann and Aline Vogt, the mezzo-sopranos Josette Micheler and Christina Seifert and the baritone Georg Witt, all from the Berlin Radio Choir, sang songs by Alexander Zemlinsky, Robert Schumann, Richard Strauss, Hugo Wolf, Claude Débussy, Gabriel Fauré and Francis Poulenc. As an encore, Georg Witt performed another song by Franz Schubert, James Wood accompanied on the piano.
Ralph Mayer hosted this wonderful afternoon in his usual knowledgeable and stimulating manner.
The recommended weatherproof clothing was not necessary, pleasantly mild autumnal weather and sunshine made the concert an all-round enjoyable event.
The participants are looking forward to the fifth courtyard concert.
