Philippe Rombi - (Joyeux Noël) Merry Christmas

“We were able to forget the war for a moment. But the war will not forget us.”

This year Orchestra Twente will give their annual concert “Merry Christmas” in a completely new form. Merry Christmas is a film that takes place during the First World War and is themed around the true Christmas armistice. The film looks through the eyes of German, French and Scottish soldiers. However, when Christmas arrives, something completely unexpected happens. On that night, the unthinkable happens when soldiers lay down their arms and approach each other to celebrate Christmas. “We were able to forget the war for a moment. But the war will not forget us.”

Some parts from the film will be shown, interspersed with live music of the film by the strings and pianist of Orchestra Twente together with soprano Marjan Vleeming and baritone Jaap Roos . The performance will be given on Sunday 11 December 2022 in Prismare in Enschede.
