Abendmusik

Upcoming Concert

In Jules Verne’s adventure novel Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg takes a challenge to circle the globe in 80 days. In his travels, he covers 9 countries, traveling by train, ship, elephant, and even a wind-powered sledge. For our spring concert we plan to cover the same distance, but through music visiting 16 countries and 9 different languages. In the 19th century, the idea of traveling around the world within a set period was an adventurer’s dream. Following publication of Verne’s work in 1873, various people attempted to follow Fogg’s fictional circumnavigation, often within self-imposed constraints: 72 days by Nellie Bly in 1889, 54 days by James Sayre in 1903, 44 days by Palle Huld in 1928, and the current record – staying in the earth’s atmosphere is 31 hours, 27 minutes by Air France’s Concorde in 1995.

We hope you come and enjoy or circumnavigation. No need for a passport or tickets. Just come, sit back and enjoy our musical journey around the world.
