The German Choir of Montreal, gracing the city for over 50 years with their repertoire of German songs, has invited the public to a concert on the 2nd of April, in the church of “Our Lady of Fatima” in Saint-Laurent.

In addition to the guests of honour, Mayor Alan DeSousa and his wife, the traditional Bavarian folk dance (Schuhplattler) group Alpenland performed in front of 120 enthusiastic people, giving them an idea of Bavaria’s typical ambiance. The Edelweiß-Trio delighted the public with their variety of songs, from Walzer to Rock’n’Roll, even “Anton aus Tirol” got everyone dancing. The evening ended around midnight with a raffle.
