St. Charles’ German Sister City Chapter is happy to announce the arrival of our sister city, Ludwigsburg’s Zither club celebrating its 100th anniversary, visiting America. We welcome the 19 members of the Zither club who will perform three concerts locally:
- 26 August at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, Washington, MO, free dinner at 5pm, concert at 7pm;
- 27 August at the Harmonie Verein, Augusta, Food trucks arrive 5:30, concert at 6pm; and
- 29 August at the Foundry Art Centre, St. Charles, 6:30.
Founded 100 years ago, the beginning shortly after First World War was not so easy. Today the Zither club has 35 active players, with a total club membership of 100. This tour to America brings sixteen zithers, one guitar, a dulcimer and the conductor. The Ludwigsburgers will be hosted by St. Charles families
The concerts are free, open to all. A freewill donation will be greatly appreciated.
