German Embassy to offer concert

The German Embassy will present a free Christmas concert Sunday for the fifth year.

The El Café Chorale will be presenting such favorites at the “Hallelujah Chorus” from “The Messiah” by Handel as well as traditional songs in Latin and German.

The event will be following a 6 p.m. Roman Catholic Mass at the Iglesia Mercedes in Grecia, said the embassy in a release.

Ernst Martens, the German ambassador, said that the concert was a way to share with Costa Ricans and the German community his country’s customs and traditions. The concert also is designed to thank those who helped the embassy with its projects this year, he added.

The El Cafe Chorale is part of the Fundación Instituto Costarricense Pro-Música Coral and has been performing since 1994.
