Christmas is the time when wishes come true - we fulfil your musical wishes in our wish list concert on the 4th of Advent! Together with the orchestra and the singers of the Bürgerchor, Gürzenich conductor François-Xavier Roth invites you to sing along in the Kölner Philharmonie. Because Christmas carols are as much a part of the Christmas season as the presents on Christmas Eve. So what could be better than raising the anticipation of Christmas together?
