"Siehe, der Hüter Israels"

A moderated choral concert by Berlin's Sing-Akademie and the Berlin State and Cathedral Choir

Surrounding the conference "Jewish and Christian Intellectuals in Berlin c. 1800," Berlin's Sing-Akademie is performing a choir concert at the Jewish Museum Berlin dedicated to the invention of the concept of "Kunstreligion" (religion of art) around 1800. The "Sing-Akademie zu Berlin" is one of Berlin's most traditional societies and is now considered the oldest mixed choir in the world. Musicians such as Meyerbeer and Mendelssohn, but also well-known Jewish salon ladies like Sara Levy were pivotal in its formation.
